if you want to go somewhere close go to golden gate ponds , you can catch alot of stocker trout or brookies , you can also catch suckers and keep um for lake trout, good luck

Elvis I think all the lakes around loveland and the fort are going to have questionable ice. I was wondering about red feather as well.

Dowdy will have good ice, NO one wants to go to John tomorrow so I will probably head to Dowdy. If you fish by the damn get in about 15-17' of water, Use a light green ratso or green jig. Tip with a healthy meal worm make sure to pinch it so the juice flows drop to bottom raise up about 3" off bottom or about two cranks on the real and watch for just a light tug or tightening of the line and have fun.. Probably see ya there.

Tight Lines and bent Rods!

How does a guy get to Golden Gate Ponds?  Is that the road around Rocky Flats - 93?  Thanks for the directions in advance. I want to take my little nephew.

Dowdy is the place to go from Fort Collins, Elvis.  I was up on the Red Feathers today.  Ice was solid and 12" thick.  Not a problem at all.  Perfect place to check out your new equipment. That's actually what I was doing. I set up my new fishfinder and used it to identify, target and capture a fish at Parvin Lake. I saw it appear on the flasher about 4' under the ice, pulled my jig up to that level, worked it a little, and BAM!
