Take a day off to go fishing on the shores of one of Colorado’s most secluded natural lakes - Lake Rocky. Surrounded by scenic wildlife, the lake’s cool and shady northern bank offers a splendid fishing spot with a magnificent view of snow-covered mountain peaks. Make your way through the shamrock-green fern thickets to step out onto the gradually sloping bank with a weedy area close to the shoreline to discover a marvelous location, perfect for catching some Rainbow Trout and Black Crappie. After all, it’s spring! So relax and listen to the merry chirping of birds as you spend the day angling in a majestically serene atmosphere of nature’s awakening.

Take a picturesque walk along the main trail and progress further down south to reach yet another delightfully scenic fishing spot with a magnificent overlook area. Feast all your senses as you gaze at the surrounding pristine woods and majestic mountain ranges, standing in their overwhelming stillness complemented by translucent blue skies and a fresh spring breeze. Here, where the rocky shore steeply descends into the lake’s cool depth, you’ll find some large boulders protruding from the water’s mirror-like surface - a sure sign of trout lurking nearby... So make yourself comfortable on this promising fishing spot surrounded by beautiful pine trees as you spend the day catching numerous Cutthroat Trout and Panfish.
