I have had little in the way of sucess from asking people on the board here, even in PMs for those kinds of places. I know the catamounts have Macks, I have been doing some searching and have found that google earth is where its at for locating the lakes. The only bit of help I got from various people is that most of the best ones are on the frontrange and I still don't know if that is true or not.

Dude, get a Delorme "colorado gazeteer". They sell them everywhere. Theres lakes full of cuttys in high places. Think hoosier pass, the rawahs, mt. evans, all along the continental divide, etc. When I find a lake I think has potential, I do the google thing and search fishing reports, hiking reports, backpacking, I find a ton of info on the internet. Just gotta search deeply.

The Fishing Close to Home publication offered by the Division of Wildlife is a great resource to find high country lakes close to Denver. The author also lists species for every lake.

Forgot about that publication. I found many of my high lakes from those pages. Although I think the species part is kinda outdated.

I did exactly what SlayerFish's first post suggests and caught my first high country cutt a few years ago. Since then, I've kept up looking on the map for lakes and just going, you'll find a ton of info on the net and even if you don't sometimes you should go anyways and be surprised, even lakes with no names can be good.

Yeah, lately I'm finding that lakes without names hold some real nice fish.
