Fishing, Lake

Guest why its call Lake County! Small or large, shallow or deep, they all offer great fishing. There are several reservoirs in the valley where fishing from shore can be very good. Near Leadville, is Turquoise Lake. The state recreation area offers great fishing and views. It has trail or road completely around the lake, giving great fishing access. South of Leadville is Twin Lakes Reservoir. This cold deep lake is at the base of Mt. Elbert. Catch and release has its merits but, something about family and friends out on the deck with the olive oil drizzled in a cast iron skillet sizzling around the legal limit of trout is appealing, not to mention nourishing. Toss in some light herbs and a bay leaf or two and you got yourself an old Fashion Rocky Mountain Fish Fry. Finally, Clear Lake Reservoir is just south of Granite, small, but probably the best lake fishing in the valley. These lakes are close enough that a fisherman can try his luck on all three in one day. These lakes also have launch ramps for those lucky fishermen with boats. There are so many lakes and streams in the valley that it would take years to fish them all. Better get started soon! Give a call for hours, directions and contact information for related services that will help bring home the bacon, I mean fish.
