Hey I'm going up to fort Collins this weekend and was thinking about getting the line wet.
Has anyone had any luck that they would like to pass on ??

As of Tuesday AM, the lake was completely frozen. :'( There is no ice fishing allowed, so unless it opens up, there's no point trying to fish it.

If you want open water the only place you will find it is at Watson Lake in Laporte.
There are perch, eye's, rainbow's, cut's, browns, smallmouth, and cats.
Apparently some tigers exist too but I haven't ever seen one.

Try it out. You will probably get skunked but if you catch a trout they will be over 17" since they haven't stocked the lake in years.

Yes, that is the one.
I tell ya, that lake, it's a weird creature.

I have plenty of pictures showing fish I've pulled out of there but it took me a long time to figure it out, mainly because I stepped into it in a funny way with the fishing skills I had.
