We arrived in the early afternoon and fished until sundown with live minnows, wax worms, cut crawlers and jigs. The minnows were used mostly.

Lots of dink perch, a few trout, and one big trout. It was about 15". Can't believe how small the perch are in CO. We caught two perch that were about 6", but that's not enough for dinner.

The big news was the wind. It was the windiest I have ever fished in. We moved closer to the tree line to avoid it, and still caught trout.

Worth the trip, but windy!!!!

I was there about a month ago and pitched a shutout, so good for you. You have to realize that Wellington is more Wyoming than it is Colorado, so of course you're going to have the wind.

I escaped from the People's Republic of California only 18 months ago. My dad is from here & Cheyenne, so I guess it's home.

The ice was 4"-6" but the winds were warm, so the top of it was slushy. Haven't seen it since then, so can't tell you what it looks like now.
