Palmer Lake was drained and restocked last summer with Trout. I heard a rumor there were Pike in there now. I fished it with my kids last summer and didn't get a bit. We used to catch Trout and Panfish there all the time before it was drained.

Monument Lake was also drained a year or two ago for dam repairs. I think it is refilling slowly and may have some Trout in it.

Not sure about Ramah.

We visited both Monument and Palmer late this Summer.

Monument was low and fairly dirty. Saw one rainbow in shallow water that looked in bad shape. May have been caught and kept only to be released after they changed their minds. ???

Palmer had a fair amount of water and we saw one guy catch a 10" perch. Since it was late Summer, the weeds had taken over a good part of the lake.

I'm not sure if ice fishing is allowed at either body of water.

Some private business owner paid to have monument stocked after they refilled it, but it recieved alot of pressure during the summer so I dont know how many fish are still left in it.
