I think it is one of those "deliverence" lakes that only the locals can use that they seem to be fond of in Northern Colorado...like Carter and Horsetooth and other lakes in the Larimer County system...8 bucks a day to get into the park on weekends up there and then they tack on $7 more a day for your boat...I know I heard banjos playing while I wrote the check...normally that doesnt annoy me...but they use fish supplied by my fishing license dollars for stocking their lakes...and yes they have annual passes...at about $75 each for an annual pass and a boat pass...

Ummmm don't all lakes/resevoirs require a daily pass?? The only one I know of that doesn't require a pass are prospect ponds and if you fish streams. So far all the places my bf and I have fished in the greater Denver area all require 10 bucks or more to fish them.

Kadiya, you're right, most lakes do require a fee, but there are afew "freebies" still out there. Lake John, Delaneys,Chambers, Lonetree, Douglas, Wellington #4, & Williams Fork to name a few. Also the red feathers lakes. I'm only familar with the ones up here in the North, but I'm sure there's afew down your way,
John

The first picture is the inlet before the may flow, the smallmouth bass will spawn in this area and they can easily be tacken with lures or live bait under a bobber. the crappie will move into this area as the flow slow. The second picture in to the north of the lake by the high school, crappies, bass and some walleye will spawn in this area, the crappie will be visible from shore, but they are tricky to catch. The pipe gets a little flow of water from the childrens pond across the street this keep the fish in the area. They spinners for the walleyes and bass.The fouth picture is the center of the inlet, again think smallmouth bass.
