For the most part, yes. However, there are a few lakes (such as Grand Lake, I believe) that are much deeper than that -- in excess of 200' in some places as I recall. Certainly 100' is plenty for most lakes on the Front Range. I don't know about down south or the western slope. Maybe somebody else could chime in on those.

What lakes will you mainly be fishing? This will point in a better direction then trying to name every lake. There are a handful of reserviors that do go above the 200 ft mark and if you will be fishing those mainly then you may want to get a 200 ft cable.

I do know that there are many lakes that are a lot deeper than 100' but I was wondering if the fish are always deeper than what you can get to with 100' of cable. I don't think you are supposed to bottom ounce downriggers are you? Never used them but are going to get them for the summer. Thanks in advance....

We usually fish Jefferson, 11 Mile, Grandby etc...2-3 hours from Denver.

100' for Granby is fine. Elevenmile is tricky even at shallower depths (too many darn huge rocks poking up). Can't help you on Jefferson, though.
