Does anyone know if there is any decent shoreline fishing on Wolford Mountain Reservoir or is specifically a boat fishing lake? I am taking a couple of kids up to Steamboat and thought about stopping at Wolford and trying our hand off the shore, but won't stop if it is a waste of time.

I have done really well up there from shore. We just fished the shoreline/cove from the boat ramp down to the campground. At that time, I was using salmon eggs and worms and caught alot of rainbows, cutbows, and kokanee. In fact, the time I have fished from shore up there, I could hardly keep track of 2 rods because the action was so hot....I would deffinetly say it is worth it.

I have fished Wolford numerous times from shore. I would recommend fishing from the day use area by the spillway. In the past we have had good luck fishing night crawlers, power bait and throwing hardware. Another plus is in this area you won't need to purchase a day use pass. There is ample parking and bathrooms available. Good Luck I hope you get the kiddos into some fish.

The Kokanee bite from shore was really hot for me when I was up there last. The average size was what I would consider to be smallish, between 8" and 12".... but the time I was there the bite was very consistant and very hot. We fished just down from the campground towards the dam right off of the main lake point.

Oh crap, never mind what i said...I had wolford confused with willow creek near granby. I would recommend you take them to willow creek reservoir. That is where I did well Kokanee fishing. Im sorry about the confusion. I actually have never fished wolford before.
