Default RMNP Trip, Help

Was looking for some helpful info regarding camping/fishing in RMNP.* A couple buddies and I are heading up there middle July and we have never fished/camped the area before.* We were looking to camp at either Aspenglen or LongsPeak as these are first come first served sites and we plan on getting there early morning on a Friday.* Is either campground better then the other as far as fishing, fishing access to streams, ponds, lakes …..ect?* Also, any information regarding what lakes or streams to fish (we strictly fly fish) not asking for your “honey holes” but some good information would be greatly appreciated.* Thanks.

Good article in the recent Colorado Outdoors magazine on fishing rocky. They actually referred to a book on fishing rocky. I'll post it when I get home.

MK, thanks.

Slayer, when you see 10 miles is that round trip or one way? I see it on the map up towards lost lake. Not opposed to the long hike especially for results

For the most part anywhere man, Look at a detailed topo map and pick a series of lakes and streams. Don't expect nice fish, everytime i go up there i bring nothing but a 3wt, some buggers, a few generic dries, and some copper johns. I have been suprised, and I even have a few spots where some nice cutties and brookies can be caught, but for the most part the park is a small trout fishery. But its a blast, and you arent fishing the blue river tailwater through silverthorne, shoulder to shoulder, while some chick with a gucci bag and a handful of bananna republic bags asks you what you are doing. So get up there, the best part of the park is exploring, finding new water, and being out in the wild.

I doubt you would be disappointed going to Fern lake. 4 miles each way.
