Default Warm Water Vs Cold Water

Me I have to go with warm water. Nothing against cold water but growing up, all pops took me to was either Nebraska, or southeast colorado lakes. Its also pretty tough to beat wiper fishing.

I have never fished at any of the lakes in the mountains. (Unless you count the Lodge Casino in Black Hawk as fishing).
I wouldn't mind giving it a try sometime. From the pics on this site, it looks like it could be fun.

with me i just adjust with the seasons.....early spring and late fall i like cold water .......in the fall when the browns spawn makes for some awesome fishing .....but then again pre spawn largemouth fishing is also great.....I think its one of the advantages that colorado fisherman have .....you might not be able to catch a mid teens largemouth ......or a world record rainbow ......but if you willing to drive you can catch a 5lb largemouth and a 5 lb rainbow in the same day.....or how about this a 10lb wiper and a 20 lbs laker in one day .......back to the subject i like the best of both worlds ...in the winter i also flyfish....damn this is a cool state now if all the people from texas and california would just go home it would be great

i'd have to go with the warm water due to the larger variety of fish

Warm water. I'm from California. We used to fish for 13+ inches bluegills with live crickets floating w/ a clear bubble(ultra light rod w/ no more than a 4lb test). I was young and it was fun. During the summer we would fish for Crappies all night. Hundreds of crappies a night.

Here in Colorado, gotta love them wipers. Maybe I'll be as experience as some of you Die Hard Wiper hunters one of these days.

Warm water. I fish for trout a little but not much. I do have to admit though, cold water fishing in the mountains gives you far better scenery than chasing fish at Pueblo!!

With a gun to my head, and forced to pick, I'd have to go with warm water. But that being said, cold water fishing is almost as good. Man, those mountain vistas, the solitude and those beautiful trout. phew I just love it.

HnL, we're gonna get ya up there as soon as things ice up, just make sure you wear waterproof boots... nothing worse than soggy feet on a winter day to ruin an outing... am I wrong Walking Eagle?

This may go against a lot of what I stand for but if you made me choose one type of fishing in Colorado, it would have to be cold water...and I'm a tried and true warm water guy. Sound crazy?

I HAVE to fish! As much as I love great warm water action from Mid-April to Late September...I know I can catch trout regularly all year round as long as I am willing to pay for the gas.

People do catch bass and other warm water fish during the cold weather months but you have to work really really hard or be just plain lucky. 99% of the time in January, you're going home with a warm water skunk!

December, January, February...what am I gonna do? Re-line my warm water gear? Heck no...I'm fishing!!!!
