Winter Park hiking/fishing
« on: August 09, 2012, 08:10:09 AM »
So I am going camping with my wife and another couple up near Winter Park this weekend.  Anyone have any suggestions on a shortish hike that can get me into some fishing?  or just a short hike with good scenery?  Looking for 6 miles or less roundtrip....my wife wont do the death marches like we did last weekend!  :D

We had a great time at Heart Lake last year, and the surrounding lakes on the approach.  (From the dirt road)  Lots of brookies in the little lakes on the approach....Heart is very pretty, steep, but not too long. 
Dog is my co-pilot.

http://coloradomountainfishing.com/bobbetty.html  There are a few lakes in this area close to these that you can get to with longer hikes all have fish...  Corona, King - bows and cutts Bob, Betty, Skyscraper, Woodland - cutts Jenny, Yankee Doodle - Bows and Brookies.
The worst part of losing good fish is that you cannot release them. They tailwalk across the back of your mind for days.' - Christopher Camuto
