Re: Chicago Lakes

I don't need help looking foolish. Like all cutts, they like to cruise the shoreline, ignoring you. When they decide to bite though, it can be great. Sometimes it's more productive throwing, and I can't believe I'm saying this, spinners and other hardware that appeal to their curiosity than their natural insect eating instincts. Now, I still think this is a crime, but if I'm going to make a 6 mile hike through tough terrain, I'm not gonna get skunked. I'd even stoop as low as throwing bait. Now that's desparate.

Re: Chicago Lakes

In all sincerity, if you want to make that hike, either up from Idaho Springs Res, or down from Mt. Evans, not for the faint of heart, but doable, (3 miles one way, I believe, if memory serves me right),* there are cutthroats there that will not bite, and make you look like an absolute idiot.

Re: Chicago Lakes

I was up there today. The only lake I saw ice on was by the parking area on the Mt. Evans road (half way to the observatory on the west side) and even that one was thawing. The lakes down below the road were ice free (and fish were rising). Echo lake is ice free as well (it was frozen last weekend).

All I saw was the likes of this guy and his buddy that wanted to jump into the truck with me...

I agree totally. Dead lakes. No need to go up there. No life in them at all.

Re: Chicago Lakes

I will try to post on saturday night for your sunday trip. I love the hike in, it starts me to get in better shape for the high altitude hunting seasons. I love the high mountain lakes. Hanging Lake on the other side of Mt Evans was putting out some good size last year.
