Re: Denver area fishing
personally, i would recommend a little drive up hwy 285 to south park. Ive had great days at all the big lakes up there (Spinney, antero, 11mile, and tarryall) as well as spots like the fairplay beach. lots of camping avaliable as well as large trout and pike in the 11 mile and spinney reservoir areas. tarryall is a little closer but in my experience doesnt yeild the quality fish that the others do. (good shore fishing opportunity at all lakes) the dream stream is always worth a visit too.. (ive hit the 30" mark for both brown and bows there) hope ive been helpful. good luck!
