Lake: Lily Lake - RMNP

Furry creatures attack at Lily Lake

Post By: anglerwannabe      Posted: 6/7/2015 7:56:34 PM     Points: 73044    
After the Derby at Estes, cruised up to Lily lake... BEAUTIFUL little lake about a mile hike around. Did not manage to catch one fish even though hiked completely around and fished it pretty good. The lake is very shallow and weedy. Stopped a ranger there and while he was very nice.. did not provide any useful information for fishing this beauty.

But the real reason for the post is beware the furry critters there! There were more otters than I could count.. sorry for no pics of those... but these other two monsters.. whoa.

Stay off the Moors!

Sounds like a fun time. I used to hit Lily quite a bit from the tubes, but it winter killed a year or two ago. They are still in there, just few and far between.

Next time don't leave home without your bear spray! That monster could have charged!!

Bring your toon up to Lilly next time and get outside that weed line!!

Glad you made it out of there without incident. A navy man named James E. Carter was once forced to valiantly defend our (fishing) waters from such terrorists.

thank you everyone for all the support and encouragement. I am proud of myself. In spite of the vicious creatures I plowed ahead and survived.

Ajax I had the toon with me but no oars. But I will be back with a tube. Although that trip may be more disconcerting as shown in Kenny Rukspin post there are OTTERS patrolling the entire lake and many of them.

Funny thing about the people that live in that area just south of Lilly Lake.... They claim that there is actually a Sloth or a Big Foot that has been sighted numerous times just a mile south of Lilly. I think Mile Marker 7 is the location. So Angler, maybe you saw a bunch of young Sloths bathing in the lake. HA HA

I love that lake for when Im up on that highway and have an hour or two to kill. It is beautiful and good fresh mountain air. Ive always had the best luck at the far west end at that sand bar or from just around to the South where the fallen trees are. Wish they had better parking though..

Hope you had a holly hand grenade in your fishing bag! I keep one on hand for just such occasions :)

thanks bardkin, I will be back as we really enjoy the Estes area and with my tube next time!

PikeN there may be a big foot.. I noticed some of the tourists disappeared when they got to the far back corner.

Smitty, it shall be thrown on the count of 3.. not 2... lol
