Only been to Twin Lakes twice this winter, got skunked both times. Usually we do awesome here. As for Mt. Elbert Forebay, we do great here in the canoe in the summertime trolling Flatfish. Dad and I just bought little pontoon boats, plan on going up soon to hit the cuttbows and lakers at Forebay. Needs to warm up just a little more. Forebay is defintiley fished better from a float tube, canoe, or pontoon boat.
