Karval on Easter
Most of my time on this site is spent gaining as much free information as possible on Colorado fishing. That said I would like to thank most of you for the wealth of knowledge you bestow on anyone looking for info.
I am diffinetly a beginner in this state, even though I thought before moving here I knew how to catch fish.
There is one issue that I find so, frustrating. That is the reliability or rather the inaccurate information I find on DOW's website.
This past Easter I decided to do some Stillwater fly fishing at Karval state wildlife park, information I received from the state website indicated that it was stocked and Warm water species make it home. I took the long, flat, straight, boring drive out, to be given some disappointing info from a Ranger about the health of this fishery. He told me the PH of the lake was off and that he was surprised to see someone fishing. I told him of the information I got from the website and he told me to try Lake Kinney to the north. It was a short conversation and I figured he would know best so I packed up and went home.
The questions that are nagging me, was the lake stocked with trout even though the water quality is an issue?
Or was the website information wrong?
There are a few intersting locations out in the farm lands to the east that would be fun to me to visit but with this last trip seemingly a waste of time, is there a more reliable source of information?
