Default Fishing in Roosevelt National Forest

I'm new to the area and a friend and I went exploring in Roosevelt National Forest.
Anyone familiar with the area and know any good places to fish for trout?

Yeah it is. I did okay out toward the nunn creek basin. 177 was a rough road!!! I was just hoping others on here might be more familiar with the area ( I moved here in January) and be willing to point me to some decent creeks as a starting point that would be worth my time to explore. Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it.

Go to a Roosevelt National Forest District Ranger office. There are a couple of them in the metro area. Get a forest service map, these maps have very good detail in them. And then tell the desk person what you are looking for and they will help you out. Also, take the map to a good fishing shop and the staff will be able to point in the right direction. Good luck!

I have the Roosevelt/ Arapahoe National Forest map along with one for the white river national forest dano49. Good idea on taking it into a fishing shop. Never thought of doing that.

The one problem with the National forest maps I have found is it seems impossible to differentiate between the streams and creeks that hold fish and the one's that are dry and or to small. I have spent a lot of time driving only do find a dry creek bed!

Sheep Creek, Larimie River, Chambers lake, Lost Lake, Honholz lakes...Just to name a few places that have provided me with a few tasty dinners* :P

Thanks for the advice.

Is this guide book the book to have for the area's mentioned above?

ELKiller,

I have caught a few brookies out of the Larimie. Seemed like decent brookie fishing. I'm sure I'll get back out there in due time. I'll have to give sheep creek a try.
