Default Colorado Lakefinder 11 is ready.

Earlier than last year but then everything is earlier this year!

To the topic at hand: Colorado Lakefinder 11 has updated (2011) air-plant stocking reports on approximately 280 high mountain lakes. So if winterkill didn't do them in, and it is not likely this year, you can count on finding fish in those beautiful high country lakes.

For those unfamiliar with Colorado Lakefinder, the basic database is 3000+ lakes with physical dimensions, elevation, depth, Colorado Atlas page, and historical stocking information. But the real highlight is the recent air-plant stocking reports from the last 11 years.

You won't find put-and-take rainbow reports here - go to the CPW website or read the fishing report in the newspaper. What you will find is really useful information about our high country lakes that can only be stocked with fingerlings by air and can only be fished after some personal hiking effort.

This year's incarnation of Lakefinder was assembled with help from that master of trout - Shoe. Everybody, twist his arm to make a cell phone version next year!! Thanks Shoe!!! And thanks to CPW for providing the raw data.

Try it out in your browser and if you like what you see, download a Windows or Macintosh version along with the instructions. No fees, no registration, no rules. Enjoy!

A couple of important points before I go:
1. The download version has the stocking info - not the browser version.
2. Leave the install in the directory it chooses. Lakefinder won't work if moved.
3. Read the instructions - only a page and a half. Most of the bug reports I receive are because the user moved the install.

Interesting. Search results indicate Mackinaw were stocked at Standley, Carter, Chatfield, Georgetown, Arvada, and even Pueblo Reservoir. I never knew that.

...it's either that or I broke the software (which is also possible).

It also says Standley is 80 feet deep. I think I need to invest some time there trying to jig up a Mack at that depth! (I've never fished it).

edited to add - I think zman needs to add catching a mackinaw from Standley Lake to his bucket list.
