Re: Any suggestions or advice on fishing in the Leadville, Colorado area in August?
If you're willing to hike, there are a bunch of high mountain lakes in the Leadville area. Mostly South-West of L'ville. There'a a hatchery in that area and they've put native Greenback Cutts in many of the mountain lakes. The Greenbacks were nearly wiped out, and they're still on the endangered species list, but if you pinch your barbs down you can catch 'em (and release them). The Arkansas River, south of L'ville has some great trout fishing -- not too many monsters, but excellent catch rates for Browns and some R'bows. By August, the water should be relatively low and clear -- bring the dry flies!
