Welcome to the area. Here's a couple resources that could help you out:

Most people are pretty tight-lipped with metro bass spots as they are easily exploited and over fished, but there are some decent gems around if you are willing to do the footwork.

Pella Crossing is an excellent bass fishing area and very close by. Sawhill ponds are just south of Longmont and have caught many three and four pound bass there and as early as the secound week of March. Coot lake is a little west of Longmont I haven't fished it in about twenty years but it had bass in it back then.

Yes, Golden Ponds, McCall, MacIntosh.

I'll second what jshanko said. Mcintosh is a solid choice, but hopefully the pressure from last summer didn't wear that lake down.

Yes, there is bass fishing near Longmont.
My tip is to take a look around and see what you find.

Pella is good and one of my favorite fisheries. Take your time and do your homework, there are bigger bass within two miles that aren't harassed nearly as much.
There are a lot for good bass ponds along the front range like Coyute says you need to get out and look or you'll miss 90% of them asking around you will get lots of answers ask aroun dtoo much and you'll get a lot of misleading answers. McIntosh is actually a decent lake, pella is good but way overfished and nearly ruined by the bucket brigades, St Vrain, Hagler, Lonetree Bodecker, Coot, Sawhill, Walden. There are some names of good fisheries. Now go find the great ones in between for yourself.
