Default Favorite and least favorite lakes in Colorado

Just wondering your favorites and least favorites and why. I guess I dont have a single favorite but some of my favorites would be Aurora, Trinidad, Spinney, and Bonny. I guess I have had the best luck at these places than any where else. Its a shame Bonny is on her death bed, what a great walleye fishery it once was. As for least favorite, it would have to be Chatfield. For some odd reason I cannot pull a walleye out of Chatfield to save my life. Plus there is always skiers and wakeboarders flying around that makes it a little less relaxing.

Jefferson and Granby although I prefer hitting beaver ponds and other smaller waters.

And although both Cherry Crack and Chatty are close to home, neither has been that good to me.

Have you been to Bonny recently? I know it is dying but is it dead yet? I may hit it tomorrow if it is still viable.

I'd have to say Mt. Home is my favorite, and Cherry Creek is my least favorite.

Cherry Creek blows!

Jackson is my all time favorite even though it hasn't been that good the last couple of years.

My favorite was Croke until they drained it... my second favorite which is now my first favorite... is probably Georgetown. It's a solid lake, it's fun to fish and every time I go there I always catch something cool. I know it's not a ponds 50 cent or whatever but sometimes it's just nice to get out and try out lures.

I got alot more favorites, but a few of them were named already. I'm sure the list will change as the year progresses.

oh yeah, least favorites...

I effing hate Barr. it's like finding a really smoking hot chick, and finding out while you have her in the back seat... that she's really a man. That's my comparison to fishing that place. it has all the awesome things to make it a dope fishery, but it just sucks horribly like a failing kirby.

Stearns. Maybe I don't use the right bait or something, or maybe I fish the wrong side of the pond, or whatever... but the only thing I have caught out of there the 20 times I fished it... was a 30 pound snapping turtle. I released him, of course.

Least favorite Lon Hagler
Favorite Maybe Horsetooth, Granby, or Chambers

Out of State Mile Lacs is my favorite followed by maybe Lake of the Woods, Glendo is just to close to home to be my favorite along with being in WY

favorite: lower stout creek, although i haven't been there in a few years i still love that place.

least favorite: cherry creek, cause i've never caught a fish there, just a nice stick. i also broke a rod there and it is the dirtiest lake i have been to that charges extra for access......yet it is still filthy, it is the only lake i have been to that stains my fireline crystal.
