So I am teaching the fishing merit badge for a troop in Golden. One of the requirements is to catch, clean, and eat a fish. My planned fishing trip is Feb. 26th and I was originally planning on heading to Chatfield and catching some stockers. However with this warm weather, the Denver metro lakes have sketchy ice conditions and I will be forced to head to higher elevations.

I am looking for suggestions on where to bring scouts where there is decent action for any kind of species. I was thinking Georgetown, Evergreen, or Green Mtn Res. I can put them on fish at Green Mtn, but it is a bit of a drive for parents. I have never fished Georgetown or Evergreen. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Planning on fishing Monday (2/21) at the lake I will take the scouts to. Thanks for the help!

Go to Georgetown. Fish in the west side of the bridge right out in the middle. Waxies and Ratso's in yellow, green, and pink.

How about Golden Gate Canyon State Park? Their pond is usually pretty good for stockers.

Thanks for the tips and lake suggestions. I never did think about golden gate ponds. I have hammered the fish there in the summer. Havent really nailed down a lake yet, but you guys are really helping me out. I almost always go for walleye or lakers, never smaller trout.

Isn't there a couple private lakes in the area that are basically run by Boy Scouts? I think one is called Peaceful Valley! Another one is up near Golden/Boulder area! That info likely doesn't help much, but...
