Definitely. Specifically in the spring, but bring some boxing gloves.

Otherwise there are some pretty good lakes in NE and KS.

Why go out of state when you can get walleye locally?

Just curious.
Cuz I don't feel guilty killing fish that I would otherwise not kill in CO:

That's a very full size cooler BTW. :biggrin1:

And camp fires are fun when the fishing is done:

always up for a trip and thought people might be a little more forthcoming on locations when it's not local. thus far I've caught one keeper walleye in my short fishing career and it was delicious. I keep pulling too-small to keep ones at chatfield and nothing elsewhere.

I have a small cabin in WY and family in KS (my least favorite place to visit) so sometimes getting from there is easy too.

I've caught walleye outta the miracle mile. Above glendo they view walleye as a pest fish that eat trout, so they have liberal limits on them in alcova, pathy and Seminoe.

Always with the Jameson...
Can't beat the value. The only times I'll buy a bottle north of $50 is for special occasions or when I'm going to visit people who drink the more expensive stuff. BTW, I can't remember what that other bottle in the picture was but it was nasty. My nephew's friend brought...

The west side has been good this fall. To bad the kill squad will be out this spring to wipe these pigs out!

Here's a few from the last couple weeks.
