Finally going to fish tomorrow, first time here in Colorado. I wanted to go to Rampart but the Ranger Station said it's a mile hike in ice and snow, that excludes it from my idea of a folding chair, some beer and hopefully a fish or two. That leaves Pueblo by default, I'll be spin casting from the shore. Anyone have any recommendations?

Right now fishing in Pueblo is very difficult for most species. That said, some trout can be had on spinners and the likes on the northwest corner. Walleye from shore are tough right now during the day, but you might find one that will eat.

You might want to try 11 mile for trout.

Go to Rampart, do the mile hike in to Rainbow Cove...trail is mostly clear, not much ice or snow at all.

Be careful of the nets that they have out for walleyes. They are marked with bouys in a line......the DOW doesn't like picking lures out of their nets. The res is tough right now and generally isn't good for trout and other species that hit spin gear. You may want to try the tailwater below the reservoir or 11mile like oyey said.

Okay, 11 mile it is! I'm in the Springs so it's a similar drive as Pueblo and looks a hell of a lot more beautiful.

If you're just looking to get into fish and catch a buzz while looking at pretty ****.... Go to Tarryall instead of 11 mile. Easy fishing.

LOL, I'm hoping to catch some fish. Just trying to keep my expectations low considering I haven't fished in many years. 11 mile looks promising as I'd like to eat some fish if I catch it. Anyway, I'll be driving a ridiculously bright red Ram 1500, if anyone is out there please feel free to come say hello.

Alright Danny. I'm gonna educate you on a few things when it comes to troll names and soc accounts.

Do you know how I was able to evade all of don's bannings? Proxy servers and disposable yahoo/gmail/hotmail accounts. This was a great attempt at fooling us, but you need to learn to cloak your IP address better. There's lots of free sites for proxy servers, just do a google search. Try again!

Alrighty then. But that's but that's not me. My ego would not allow me to make a trolll account. I want credit for pissing people off. Troll accounts are your style, not mine.
