First of all I have a small boat and a small SUV so hugh mountain lakes are out of the question.

With that in mind are there any places where someone with a smaller boat can catch macks w/o mountain hills?

It it just east of woodland park. Turn right at the mcdonalds (coming from the springs) and stay on the road past the two schools and then turn right at the T (there are signs to follow)
As I stated earlier, I had great luck there 2 weeks ago trolling worms behind cowbells. Also had great luck trolling Hornet Salmos. There are a ton of macks in that lake.

There are some hills but nothing major ( not like going over monument pass or anything). The lake seems to be fairly sheltered and the wind does not get as bad as 11 mile -- so a 12-14 foot boat will have no problems. Mine is only 14 feet.

Hey Jay, they have also stocked something like 40,000 Splake in Horsetooth the last couple of years. Carter has been stocked with Splake for the last 15 years also.

Both of those lakes would be very easy to get to!

Docks are probably in now. But I just tie a rope to the boat and push it off the trailer and then pull the rope to beach the boat just enough to keep it in place and then use the motor to pull it off the beach.
