Taking my grandson up to Estes Park for a couple of days.
We will have a canoe and electric motor.

Figure to troll estes lake with Rapalas.
Any other lakes that would be good for an inexperience 12 yr old?

I live in EP. Only boating in town is lake estes. Hope you guys do well, I haven't fished the lake much this year. Usually you can expect consistent action for stocker bows, and also a good population of browns but very few of large size. An 18" fish will be well above average. Quite a few perch in there. Occasionally see a four or five pound bow outta there and I have seen a few big browns. Also rarely a tiger muskie. There used to be walleye but I haven't heard of any for a few years.

I thought the lake fishkilled because of all the pollution running into the lake because of the floods?
