I went to rmnp yesterday with a goal to catch my first greenbacks and boy it was fun! I was going to fish lily lake only to find out that the flooding had severely damaged the trout population so I went up and found some higher up alpine lakes with greenbacks. The hike was not bad with most trails being hard packed snow from heavy use. Right off the bat I got 2 cutties, and throughout the rest of the day a ended up with around 10, all around ten inches. Such a beautiful fish! They were more interested in reaction baits, but occasionally one would come through and hit a scud or small copper john. Looked like I was the only one that had ice fished up there all season, but had lots of passing hikers throughout the day. The ice was over 2.5 feet and I couldn't fish the higher up bigger lake I wanted because the ice was too thick for my hand auger. Overall it was a great experience though! Sorry for sideways pic.
