right on fishingfreak thanks, do you know of any in the metro area?
 Reply by: fishingfreak      Posted: 3/31/2011 7:10:06 PM     Points: 1570 but i do know a stream that runs near sawhill ponds in boulder that has giant minnows in them..... along with some carp dont ask where they come from even i dont know.....

but its right behind the twin lakes village, after parking and passing both lakes on your right and left just go all the way back till you see a stream/river then theres a medal tunnel you can cross over and to the right theres tons of giant minnows you can catch off worms....

Yup you wont find any carp in the ponds only in the rivers becase the water in the ponds are really dirty and murky

Yes I use suckers for bait, there great for ice fishing. So that why I am looking for places around town that would have suckers in them. Golden gate pond has them but since that fire a few weeks ago i am not to sure about the run off from the in to the ponds how that will affect the fish..

Several years back in April I found them by the hundreds in the South Platte river upstream (above the bridge in Chatfield State Park) from where it empties into Chatfield Reservoir.
