Great Colorado trout fishing Action!!
Shawnee Lake Colorado Trout fishing near Denver:
Want to go fishing close to Denver but the rivers are swollen from runoff?? Come fly fish this premier private trout filled lake only about an hour from Denver. Great for a quick trip out of the city with the possibility of catching some very large trout. The lake has been stocked periodically over the years and is fed from the North Fork of the South Platte. This constant water supply allows the trout to winter
exceptionally well and grow to very large proportions. With abundant insect activity and lots of natural and diverse food sources these rout grow very quickly. Several techniques can be used on the lake. Anglers can fish from shore or belly boats. The trout, especially the rainbow trout, will sometimes eat dry flies with enthusiasm. In spring, streamers are very effective and all year a variety of sub-surface presentations can be deadly. If you are looking for a small still-water fishery close to Denver, trying to find a good place to fish or fun things to do when vacationing in Colorado, this lake might be a perfect guided Colorado trout fishing trip option.
