Default Turquoise Lake

So before my dad passed away last year he had mentioned wanting to have his ashes spread near the Arkansas River headwaters, As he has fished the Arkansas River almost all his life in Arkansas, Found out thats near Leadville so...

I am planning a camping trip to Turquoise Lake 6/28/13-6/30/13 (My dads Birthday was 6/29/1959)

My Step mom already got Reservations at Turquoise Lake specifically at the Father Dyer(What a coinsidence) Campground.



Anyway too the point.. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share any info on fishing Turquoise Lake around that time of the year ? ? (I will be bringing my boat)

Preferably for lake trout... P.M.'s Welcome obviously


Thanks in advance for any info provided!!

Ricky

Rvinson.... I don't know chit about the lake open water but I icefished it as recently as a week and a half ago...

The lake is super low right now. The deepest spot I marked was about 50 feet in front of the dam. Hopefully the lake gets some water.... But honestly id go to that side of the lake and jig tubes/sucker/shiner meat. Good luck! The fish were small but they all had orange meat.....

You're going to love it up there. The Father Dyer story is pretty interesting too. He's an important part of the local history.

Thanks guys... Guess I'll just use the standard Laker gear and do some searching... I guess if the water is way down it will make the searching a little easier.


Any thought on Twin lakes? It's pretty close to Turquoise.. I could make the trip there from turquoise if it would be worth it?

T1000 definitely would be the man to talk to. He helped me land the fish I recently posted on the bragging board.

Try rooster tails. Find a point in the lake and fish the shallows. Those rooster tails are light and you shouldn't have to worry about them hanging up on the bottom or on the rocks. ......Real them in slow.
