Default Silverthorne Area End of July??

If a guy that lives in Missouri was going to be vacationing for a week in the Silverthorne area this summer (last of July), where might he try to catch few fish with out using a fly rod? He would be taking his older kids (7 & 12) at least once, and they need bites to keep interested. If he goes by himself he would rather catch bigger fish. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Also he is not picky on species of fish but prefers to fish lures vs bait. He says Thanks in advance

good thing you're not picky. you will pretty much only catch trout. Maybe a sucker or 2 but not likely if using lures. plenty of water all around from dillon reservoir north to green mountain reservoir. the blue river between them. officers gulch to the west along I-70. georgetown lake back to the east. and lots of small creeks and beaver ponds to the south. get a map and narrow your search down from there. most bodies of water will have trout in it. you will find a fair amount of private water in the said area.

Here is a great map. It also shows the regulations for a body of water. some have links to the fish surveys and stocking reports. http://ndismaps.nrel.colostate.edu/fishingatlas/

Default Try Kiddie ponds

This is no secret so----consider the north pond in silverthorne for both age groups. No BAIT. There is also a pond behind walmart. We do not keep fish around here except from the Dillon Resv. Per the above-NOT exactly free flowing water if ya get my drift.

Catch and release all browns at dillon. And if its a "hold over" rainbow, release it. The CPW wants to bring back the good fishing at Dillon but they have no protection for the larger fish that can make it through the summer and feed on the hundreds of thousands of fingerlings that are stocked in there specifically to feed them. They have given a shit ton of food to a very small population of larger fish. They are trying to grow big fish yet they let many big fish get killed every year by tourist who don't know any better. There is a outfitter on the lake that has no discretion on what they keep allowing clients to keep anything they want. They kill alot of fish year in and year out.

Get away from it all and go North to Williams Fork or Wolford. Better chances from the shore than fighting shopper tourists in/around S-Thorne. Dillon is a waste of time; Blue Riv depends upon the flow at that time of year. Good luck!

No worries on taking fish, we are not a really a fish eating family.

That map is awesome, I wish the State of Missouri would put out something similar.
