Would anyone happen to know general areas on Lake Dillon to ice fish? I drive by it on I-70 all the time never see anyone out there. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Do a search on here to find contact info for Fordo. He is our resident guide/authority on all things Dillon.

Thanks, guys! I was actually wanting to go after some kokes. There are a lot of coves from what I have seen from 70 and looking at maps of the lake. It just seems like a lot of excellent structure and was curious as to why no one fishes it. I will fore sure get a hold of Fordo.
Thanks again guys!

Jeez Fordo thats 10 years worth of fish pics. I caught more poundage than that on Wednesday alone-
touche! Dillon may not be as packed with brutes as antero, Spinney and a bunch of Wyoming lakes I go to that’s for sure.

Fordo the fishery has some brutes for sure as of course you know but an average angler doesn’t know that because they rarely fish the lake and the fact it’s near one of the busiest cities on I70 a lot of avid fisherman don’t go there, which is a good thing. You should let people think it doesn’t have good fish. 😛

Hey Cro, You go to Dillhole a bunch this winter and shower us with pics of nice fish--
I dare ya!
I will definitely focus my fishing on Wyoming lakes and lakes with lake trout in them as well as some other lakes with perch and walleye, goal is to find crappie through the ice.

Also to the original poster. Reason you don't see anyone from i70 fishing is because most people go near the inlet to catch kokes.

Dillhole has been very good to me. Starting out, it was just a place close to home where I saw an opportunity with the tourist market up here to maybe have a side gig that would help pay for my fishing habit. I never intended on the business growing so fast and supporting 3 full time guides. I am very thankful to call such a beautiful place my office, and being able to support my family from it.

And ya Slayer, it’s not easy like Elevinmile, Antero, spinney and Wyoming. Can’t just go stand on a rock with a kastmaster and expect results.

I can confirm slayers watering holes in wy are not easy. Conditions like the Arctic, all day for one fish sometimes. Those are nice fish in the pictures too!
