Brown Trout in Soda Lake?

Post By: SaugeyeKillah      Posted: 4/10/2014 9:49:14 PM     Points: 230    
Hope this is an ok question, if not mods can delete it?

I was researching some of the city lakes around Lakewood and Littleton and saw that Soda Lake has Browns and Saugeye in there. Anyone know if this is true?

I ask because on other sites I've also seen some other reports of species in certain lakes that I knew to be completely erroneous.

Our stocking data from CPW shows that saugeye fingerlings were stocked in 2011. Not sure about the browns.

I believe Ben Swigle is the biologist for that area. Please correct if that is incorrect.

Might want to contact him.

If that lake is in Lakewood or Littleton, I think Paul Winkle is the CPW Biologist. But Swigle might still have an answer.

There are both species In the lake. The trout are few and far between, you would be better off fishing bear creek reservoir. I have fished soda a bunch and only once did I ever catch a trout. The saugeye are usually on the small end.

Yeah, there's Saugeye in there...I've also seen plenty of carp, a dead sucker, and saw someone catch a perch once..not sure about any browns, but I think I remember someone mentioning that they caught one years ago.

I recall someone on here posted catching a really large brown out of Soda Lakes within the past two years.

Place is infested with carp, a blast trying to get them to bite 1/4 oz or so tube jig, sometimes they bite and sometimes they turn quickly by your jig and well, snag themselves ::))
