Evergreen lake can be an awesome place for fly beginners. Also, there's a pond across from smith reservoir behind some apartments off like Kipling and Jewell that is full of bluegill, bass, crappie, perch and who knows what else. It's been a while since I fished it but it was hard to not catch something. I remember having a killer time catching gills and bass on dry flies and hoppers and stuff. There were fish all over. aurora would be one of the last places I'd recommend.
