Hello I'm Andy, new to the forums and new to Colorado. I moved from Alaska and would like to catch some perch now that I'm in the lower 48. Is there any hardwater near Colorado Springs that holds perch. I have done some research and the reservoir out west of the divide seem more productive. I noticed there are some in Brush Hollow Reservoir. Does it freeze? My son and I are up to catch anything, well I wouldn't mind staying away from trout. I have most everthing I need to ice fishing, vexilar fish flasher and camera, sleds, augers, shack, tip up, too many poles. Well I don't know if you can actually have too many. Is it worth taking a snowmachine or fourwheeler to the bigger reservoirs later in the year? Anyways, any ideas of place to ice fish this weekend within a 90 minute drive of the springs?
