Your Favorite Lake in Colorado
« on: December 31, 2006, 01:55:13 PM »

  With my limited time spent fishing CO. waters for bass, I do have a little favorite called Brush Hollow Reservoir.While this little lake has no marina, there is a boat ramp. When water levels are good, it will accomadate bass boats, pontoons,and small boats in general. There is no room for water sports, so it is rarely busy. Located in Penrose CO., it is just 45mins.south of colo. spgs..For up to date info. you can contact: General fishing tackle in Colo. Spgs. @ 719-634-6831.More info @ cdow.org

By far my favorite lake in Colorado is Pueblo Res. I fish this lake all year round. There is rarely any ice and I don't like trout fishing. Last winter they would only bite gold spoons, it didn't matter the size or shape just gold. This year they have gotten allot smarter. We have only been able to catch them on slender sliver 3/8 to 1/2 oz spoons. 90% of the fish caught at this time of year are around 2 to 3 1/2 pounds. I love winter fishing, the abundance of large fish over come the cold. The lake is about 10 min. west of Pueblo on hwy 50. please let me know if you go and how you did. the rest of the year the best bait to use is a watermelon 3" tube on either 1/4 to 3/8 oz tube jig head. good luck.

 I hope to get out to pueblo with a buddy this year, have fished it a bit over the years with he and his boat. I tend to end up at the hollow most often, due to its ease of accesibility for the bank basher. However, this year i'll be afloat on a tube, so I will force myself to avoid sticking with the most convenient, and expanding my horizons a bit more.

Never been to Brush Hollow?  What type of fish does it hold?  I use to fish Peublo & Horse tooth alot for Smallies but since the stocking of the new Shad in Aurora the Fish size has gone wild and the Smallies and LMB are growing like Crazy!   Got into the Smallies in May last year and caught 15 fish between 3-5lbs!  Ice Ice Go away!

There are some pretty decent largemouth, and some smallies, though I have not caught any very big. Biggest L.B. I've seen caught, by a friend was around 7 lbs., and my best about 5. Not too shabby. There are alot of trout, Bluegill. Perch, some real nice cats were pulled out last year also. Water levels can be unreliable. I recently bought a float tube, and a float tube map for Aurora res., so I will be checking it out as well as Quincy, very soon. How are these lakes now?

Brush Hollow is a good spring time bass lake; however, it is pretty small (no wake) and the boat ramp has been out of the water most recent years after the farmers start drawing water.  It was drained a few years ago and was recovering but has been very low in in 2005 and 2006.  Hopefully it will get some needed water this year.  May I recommend early morning top water along the dam.  My last trip there produced 17 fish in about two hours ....all on a Pop R.  Nothing big, but lots of fun.  My little 14' 10 horse power boat was right at home.

Pueblo has to be my favorite place to fish for bass here in Colorado.  Large mouth, small mouth, and spots make it interesting.  Early in the year the fish are still deep around the rock bluffs and ledges and can be taken on drop shot or shakey heads.  Just be careful early in the year as the wind can been nasty and the water is very cold.

Need a sleeper?  Try Lathrop State Park at Walsenburg.  Opens early, good bass, and not too far away.

Best wishes for fun bass fishing this year and remember....there is no such word as alot.

I fish all over colorado and usually on a daily basis i tend to like smaller ponds for the earlier parts of the season
like the pond's at 104th and McKay rd. in thornton or the small pond on 64th and Pecos they bold hold decent largemouth that tend to get active faster the pond on 64th hold a decent amount of smallmouth which all have bad attitudes which just means they are aggressive but when summer starts to roast these lakes pueblo and horsetooth
can bring in some nice bags  ~gator

I wonder if I have ever seen you @ 64th & pecos....surprisingly good bass in that lake, look on Google maps and check out the lake s/w of that one south of the platte...sketchy R.R. bridge to get to it but there are BIG bass in it.
As far as my favorite lake......hmmm...McCalls west of longemonte...home water growing up.

I like John Martin and Lake Hasty. Although Lake Hasty is very small its got some larger fish in it. It also reminds me of those at home with all the veg. in it. Lake Hasty is located just below the res.
John Martin is a very large res. however the calm summer mornings you can see the fish jumping out of the water. 6 lbers are a lot of fun to catch.  ~gf

Several good ponds in north Denver suburbs for shore fishing.  When taking the boat out, I'd have to say Pueblo is my favorite, but due to distance I go to Horsetooth more often.

I'll revive an old thread.  ;D
I fish Coal Creek Golf Course in Louisville. I was the Assistant Superintendent (golf turf management) there for several years. So, I know the ponds that fish best.
This year I am going a few miles North to the ponds/lakes in Hygiene. There are a chain of lakes called "Pella lakes"...it's unbelievable!
I'm up for any water within a 100 mile radius tho.  ~cf
