PIC # 1: Jesse and Simone Phillips celebrate a beautiful wedding on the ice at Eleven Mile, truly a spiritual place to take such vows. Notice they have their rig set and ready. pic courtesy J & S Phillips

PIC # 2: Caught 12.13 by Joe Niemi 22” a personal best to date. pic courtesy j.niemi

PIC # 3: This nice one caught in 58 feet of water only 8 feet down.

TROUT: VERY GOOD: Action has been fun for early ice anglers as is often the case.. Howbert Point, Sucker Cove and Stoll Mtn, Rocky Flats have been the early hot spots. Lots of different baits are working. Kastmasters, tube jigs, Swedish Pimples, Trout Traps, Rat Finke, 11 Mile Krystal Lazers. We always like to tip baits with a meal, wax worm or crawler piece. Early and mid morning bites have been good.

It’s a big lake but people seem to like crowds. You can have Cross Creek we will gladly take the rest of the lake. Pic # 3 caught in deep water off of North Shore and there were lots of Trout out there suspended just below the ice. Work the bottom with big tubes can result in Big Browns. But go ahead to Cross Creek if it makes you feel more confident just because there are so many people there. It’s a big lake! And there are fish all over it. Be a sportsmen and find your own spot. Then keep it close to cuff because it’s your spot.

KOKANEE SALMON: NO REPORT

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR: Mostly smaller fish. Try West of Stoll to Cross Creek in 5 to 12 feet of water. East side of Howbert has also shown promise. WE HAVE LIVE WATER DOGS JUST THE PERFECT SIZE

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.
