Default Silver Lake, Island Lake, Goose Lake, Private???

These are located between Nederland and Ward to the west. Are these lakes private? I haven't been to them before.

Boulder Water owns them. No fishing, or even getting near them.

More public lakes closed to public access makes me want to vomit. Sounds just like Boulder.

So to answer your question, they are not private, but the city of the liberal extremists prevents access.

Thanks for the replies.
I'm trying to plan my fishing for this friday and didn't want to waste my time if it was going to be on private land. Was thinking about Dorothy Lake by Eldora but I'm not sure how far the hike is. I should probably stop smoking and then it wouldn't matter as much. LOL I might just go back to Yankee Doodle and also hit Jenny while I'm there. I know for certain there are fish in Yankee. I work third shift in Boulder, so I'm trying to hit lakes close to here.
I do agree, using taxpayer money to run or build something and then preventing the taxpayer from using it makes NO sense. But I don't want to start ranting about my hate of the "left".

Thanks!

Colorado is one of the worst, if not the worst, in the nation at preventing or restricting access to public lakes, just because they supply water to a town. Barker Reservoir allows public access, and the other three lakes feed into it. It's just more nanny state nonsense.

Lake Dorothy is about 12 miles round trip...Yeah, smoking can kill you..A lot of the lakes that are closer have good fishing...May not catch a trophey...But, you should see plenty of action...Remember, you don't have to get above timberline for great fishing..

Thanks. I'm not much of a fisherman. Hunting is by far my forte. For some reason this summer I've gotten pumped about catching trout.
I moved to Colorado ten years ago from the midwest. Growing up in Iowa I could catch a bucket of bass, bluegill and crappie in litterally minutes at almost any farm pond or lake. When I first moved out here I went trout fishing with limited success, so i haven't really touched my fly rods or poles in years. My goal is to hit every small body of water east of the divide, within a two hours of Boulder, and catch/photograph as many species of trout I can.

Thanks

Sickening, plain and simple. Even California, friggin' California no kidding, allows better access as a whole to public water lakes.

I seem to have no trouble finding lakes to fish. In fact, there are too many to fish in a lifetime.
