The stocking that Slayerfish is referring to happened in 2004 and received a couple little write-ups in the Post and elsewhere. If I remember right, 50 brooders went into Joe Wright and another 150 were split between 2 other lakes. I know Grand lake got some, but I don't remember the third lake. I haven't heard of any of them being caught.
I am surprised with your gunghoness (is that a word?) towards ice fishing...the elevation of Cameron Pass...the coldness of the Never Summers...that Joe Wright isnt one of the your early places for ice fishing...at least before the ice gets a mile thick...or the snow too deep to make it to the lake...maybe you do make it one of your early spots...figured those brooder macks would make it high on your list...I only ice fish because it becomes the only game in town...that and I have my sights set on a twenty pound Pueblo Wiper...
Late July and early August is the best time I have observed for Grayling on Joe Wright, especially around 5 P.M. and later when the winds calm down. Get out on the water in a belly boat or a pontoon and you can even do well with a fly rod and some small dry flies.
the dow even had a press release on the stocking of these lakers, they came from the federal hatchery at Saratoga Wyo. It was rather interesting to see them stocking Lakers in Colorado water, as a matter of fact that press release disappeared off the DOW web a couple days latter, I think some one got they pee pee spanked for allowing the stocking to happen. They were some real nice looking fish and should be ripe for the catching!
