Summit Lake

Well, no fish porn but here's some nice photos from our weekend up on Mount Evans of Summit Lake and some of the critters we saw. Anyone going up to Idaho Springs should definitely take the Phoenix Gold Mine tour too--it's a lot of fun.

Beautiful pics, and looks like a fun day!! From the water surface, I'd almost guess the wind wasn't too bad!

Don't cut the fly and bubble rigs off yet either. Caught many warm water species on one with a pistol Pete down on the flat land here too!

I'll keep trying. Whatever the jumpers were eating it was so small we couldn't see it to match it.

YD--I'm sure we could of caught some using eggs but we had to be in Idaho Springs at 1:00 to go rafting so we ran out of time.

Blake's still going on about this trip despite the lack of fish--makes it a great outing! Thanks all!

That's at the Phoenix mine Kevo. Your son would have a great time there too if you're in Idaho Springs.
