my wife and I went up to Gtown lake,on june 10th .the weather forcast was for 19 mph winds at the most,well we were met with 55mph winds,we couldnt even fish for more than an hour and a half. caught 2 small bows.then we had to leave beffore we were blown away.
Sorry to hear that the winds got the best of you. I did well on Sat evening fishing small jerkbaits erratically...the browns could not resist it...and it was actually kinda balmy. Seems to be or miss up there with the weather.
By the way, did you happen to cruise up to Crystal Lake? It's drawn waaaay down for some kind of work.

Relying on the weathermen to forecast wind in Colorado, is like relying on a politician to keep his promises... Its just something that we have to deal with in exchange for all the other great things the state has to offer.
Saltyfresh, do you mean clear lake, or is there a crystal lake in that area I'm not aware of? I was thinking of going to clear lake sometime soon, and if it's drawn down I'll change my plans, but I'm not aware of a crystal lake in the general area of Georgetown. Thanks.
This is just my experience. Every time I go there, I catch tons of stocker rainbows that look fine. When I catch larger rainbows or browns, they're skinny as hell. This spring I caught a 16" brown that looked almost deformed...huge head, snake-like body.
I think this lake is really mis-managed. And yeah, it's often windy. But it's always been that way, so I'm not sure how that would be a deal breaker for someone wanting to fish there. I'm no master angler, but I find that the quality of the larger fish in this lake is extremely poor.
Still, I fish it every time I pass it and have time!
