Does anybody know anything about any of the lakes on the grand mesa? Any information is good. Also, if you can find a place that will give me information, tell it to me on this post. I want to get catching some brookies as soon as possible!

Check the DOW and State parks site for reports or here are some numbers:
Highline Lake State Park (970-858-7208)
Colorado River State Park, park manager Brad Taylor (970-434-3388) or Jim Weibel park ranger (970-858-9188)
Colorado Division of Wildlife biologist Bill Elmblad (970-255-6100)
Sportsmans warehouse in Grand Junction Ryan Schopp or Cynthia Roberts (970-243-8100)


I would start there.

Thanks for the help epic, I'll call sportsmans, I think they'll have the most up to date info on the lakes with ice conditions and snow conditions.

Its going to be a while TFB. The mesa received a ton of snow this year. The good thing is that they say that all lakes on the Mesa will fill this year. Hopefully they will restock the waters that were killed off by drought. Call the Grand Mesa Lakes Ranger Station at 268-5420 or the Grand Valley Ranger District Office at 242-8211 for info.

We didn't used to be able to get in there'til the 4th of July, but the Granby lakes and Battlement lakes near Island lake had a lot of brookies, w/Battlements having the larger ones-12"-18". also a few rainbows & cutthroats. The mosquitoes are fierce though.
