I?m thinking of fishing Green Mountain Reservoir this weekend. Has anybody had any recent or springtime experience on this lake? I fished there years ago and was rather disappointed.

What's the ecology like? Is this more of a clear oligotrophic lake or a fertile eutrophic lake?

the denver post says that it's fishing good right now(but who really knows) i believe that this lake is pretty clear and rocky on the bottom as ive never pulled much for weeds up there, some of the little bays have some weeds. when i've been up there ice fishing though all we saw with the camera was lots of big rocks on the bottom, we only went out to about 30 ft deep but there are lots of big lakers there . i caught a 10 pounder ther from shore a couple of years ago throwing a small black thomas boyouant. when we let her go she shot off back to the deeps.

That's interesting. I'll probably drop by there and if it's slow, there?s always Williams Fork close by.

I also read on DOWs site that it?s good now but you can never really trust what they say either. I think they use the weekly report to try to move fishermen around for revenue or political areasons.

There fishing reports are even BS. They lie, lie, lie, and lie to promote their own agenda.
