COLORADO ICE FISHING
You’ve got to love the cold for this, but the experience is even more unique and rewarding than that offered by conventional fishing in some cases. There’s a smaller community of ice fishers within the larger fishing community here, and if you get in with the right people, you can even be invited to one of their super exclusive tournaments. Those are once in a lifetime, believe me.
Colorado Culture Approved: One of our favorite spots close to Denver is Gross Reservoir which is located 15 miles Southwest of Boulder, but be mindful of the time of year and recent weather patterns as the ice has been known to be thin in certain areas due to varying temperatures, high winds, and fluctuating water levels.
Friendly Travel Tip: There's a popular saying when it comes to ice fishing that goes something like, "when in doubt, don't go out". Please be sure to check the depth of the ice and if you're unsure; find another spot or save it for another day. It's better to live to fish again.
