Trying to find out conditions at the Golden Gate Ponds...the state park website isn't very helpful on it and I haven't seen a report yet. Unfortunately, I'm relegated to very short day trips for awhile, so I was hoping to head up there if there is some decent ice later during the week. thanks for the help.

Mountain Man, I just called (303-582-3707). got the number from

http://parks.state.co.us/parks/goldengatecanyon/Pages/GoldenGateStatePark.aspx

The lady that ansered was really nice, and said that although it was "at your own risk" People have been icing Krilley.

I was thinking of trying to take the kids next Sunday. My wife works, and I'm not sure how easy it'll be to controll them on the ice.. (but I haven't fished in almost 3 weeks, was planning on going tomorrow, but have some type of stomach bug today)
Anyway, I'll be dying to get out, and until I saw your post, I wouldn't have doubted they'd have a solid lid by now..

If you go up before Sunday, let me know how it goes.. thanks

Cool. Was gonna say they usually have about the same amount as Georgetown, and should be about right there.

Was there Sunday AM, a good 9"-11" on most of the slough. Picked up just a couple in about 1 1/2 hours. Must not have stocked any in this fall as a couple of years ago had 12 or so in that amount of time.
Cheers.

Fishing Report - 12/6/2010
Golden Gate Ponds (Slough, Kriley, Ranch Ponds and Dudes Fishing Hole) were stocked August 24, 2010. Stocking will not resume until May 2011. Fishing pond have mostly frozen over. The park does not monitor ice thickness - deciding to ice fish is at your own discretion.

Went the 11th to kriley. Ice was 6-8. We went for suckers and caught mostly rainbows. Decent 12-14 inchers and hard fighters. Bring cleats! Also got checked by Dow, so don't forget your license!
