what kind of fishing?

Check out Lake Dillon for regular fishing, and there are lots of stretches of water for fly fishing up in summit too...drop the ladies off at the outlet malls!

I had this dillema once. I chose Dillon Res. Worked out perfectly. Or just outside of that 1.5 hrs (possibly) is Green Mountain Res. Might be a little better chance of catching something and you can fish very close to your picnic table. Either one should be a good day.

i guess i should have mentioned that...We have gear for everything really. LMB, Trout, pike etc...no fly fishing poles yet though.

At Dillon and Green Mountain are there certain spots to avoid?
