Fishing. Rocky Mtn Natl Park

cutthroatSince 1969 the fishery management philosophy at Rocky Mountain National Park has been to restore the greenback cutthroat trout, the original native fish. Rainbows, browns and brooks are harvested; the cutthroat is catch-and-release only.

Dream Lake had a fair number of actively feeding trout just downstream of the inlet. Sprague Lake had a fair number of actively feeding fisherman at the large picnic area. The Big Thompson River near the museum looked productive with about a half-dozen fly fisherman.

Bear LakeBear Lake had a number of rises, but is closed to fishing.
The park is beautiful and has many accessible destinations. Consequently, parking lots fill up before noon and a shuttle has transports for hundreds of people. Some of the trails are paved with asphalt.
