Thanks for the info guys! Yeah I have been to seeley lake its alright all I caught were trout off kastmasters. Are the fish in that lake edible? It seem a little dirty to me because all I seen were dead carp and shad all over the place.

I also live in Greeley and pretty much agree with everything that Waleye970 wrote. As far as eating the fish out of Seeley, I've heard of people doing it and they are still alive, but I wouldn't personally.

I also live in Greeley.......Seeley's is fed by dirty irragation runoff......so if you like insecticide, herbicide and fertilizer then go ahead and eat the fish. There are some monster cats in there though.....as well as tiger musky (don't know how many). My fishing trips are rarely in town.....Ft. Collins and Loveland have much more fishing.......I guess they actually give a sh*t about fisherman there.

Jackson Res. is about 45 minutes away.....Lonetree and Lon Hagler are about 35 minutes......Boyd is 20 minutes......the better ponds are 20 minutes.....Horsetooth is 40 minutes.

ok everyone out there think about this, all lakes are dirty and have insecticides and herbicides in them
think about this ok reservoirs are fed by ditches, ditches are fed by rivers and the run off runs back into ditches who run into the river! so every lake u think of (except for mountain lakes of course) have all this "crud" in them! not to mention that alot of the city run off runs directly into the poudre (god only knows what city folks put in there) and then the poudre runs into the platte which eventually joins the north platte which will flow into the missouri which flows into the mississippi and that flows into the sea! just stop worrying cuz there is no way around it.

I agree.......but on the east side of Seeley's there is a ditch feeding the lake that is brown and smells of feedlot. It turns that whole side coffee color. If you're going to fish to keep them....I'd go elsewhere.........but to each his own.

Walleye is right......you and everyone else.....at night.....which is when cats bite. You can fish that spot from shore.......it's in-between Monforts and Mr. Renfro......just have to ask.....or know them.
