Hello fishing friends. My name is Rob and I'm a bass fisherman who has been living most of his life down here in the South fishing these wonderful lakes like Guntersville, Chickamauga, Douglas, Dale Hollow, etc. I got a call from a company located in Denver about joining their team and we are considering it. This will be a HUGE move for our family and one that I have to think about and consider everything that matter to us. For me my hobby is fishing. I have been fishing for most of my life and being on the water with a rod in my hand is how I relieve stress. I am a member of a bass club and I do fish tournaments, but not to make a ton of money. mostly just to be out catching. I had started to think I would have to sell my boat, and all my bass gear if we made this move because I thought or should I say I just have never heard of any good bass fishing out in or around Denver. I found this site and thought I would ask if some of you would give me some insight on what I can expect. what or where are the lakes? Do you all have bass clubs? Do you have a smallmouth and largemouth bass both? On a basic day out would you say you catch a limit of 5 3-4 lbers. or more like 1or2 1 lbs if you don't want to share to much info on here for others to see that's fine you can e-mail me. but I would like to know what you all think about the fishing. Do I even need a boat? are the lakes deep, shallow, mostly rocks, have grass or weed in them? is the better fishing in the mountain streams for trout? if you live in Denver (currently looking for homes in the Lakewood to Highlands ranch areas. will I have to drive a long ways to find good bass water? just anything you think a southern bass angler needs to know about moving to CO. thank you!!
