Yesterday’s adventures took me to seven lakes, and 4 miles of hiking in search for cutthroats. The weather was tough, snowing and windy. I had not caught a single fish all day until my last stop. Only caught one fish, on my first cast, but it was a beauty! A nice Greenback cutthroat! That fish alone made my entire day!

Crazypickles, Zimmerman apparently has no fish in it any more. I was going to hike up to it a few months back, and right by the parking lot, there was a sign that said no fish in the lake, and it will be restocked next year. I remember seeing a whole bunch of DOW guys up here when I went to steamboat this summer, so maybe they killed it off and put in some of the bear creek strain of fish to have some pure greenbacks in there.

Hey Lindsie, if you ever want some local's info on some high country cutthroat waters in my area, just shoot me an email. I know a number of hike-ins in Summit County that hold good numbers of nice cutts.
