Tiger trout? Help?

Post By: whitehook      Posted: 10/17/2016 6:53:01 PM     Points: 19    
Since no one will mention lakes that tiger trout have been stocked at in CO I decided to check the DOW site and look for where the current tiger trout record came from. It mentions "Spring Lake". I checked on the Fish explorer map and tried using google but cannot for the life of me figure out where that lake is. Can anyone point me to it? I wont be harvesting any tigers just trying to check another species off of my list. Thanks.

If you click on the bar at the top of the screen that says "fish species" then click on "tiger trout " it will list all the lakes in Colorado that have tiger trout in them. It's no secret the information is right here on Fxr, Just saying.

If you want to catch a tiger and not looking for a state record go to saint Marrys. The biggest one I have caught was 14 inches, but you will catch a bunch of them.

Use the CPW fishing atlas.

The sites is not accurate but maybe %60 when it comes to Tiger trout and what lakes contain them. I've seen some lakes on here and called CPW to verify and they would say they havne't stalked a trout there in years if ever. So just a heads up, better to just look around the web.

I've noticed that with Tiger Trout and Golden Trout, their always feeding and raising through most of the day. It's as if they like the heat!

Flylady, what info is wrong on the site?
Email me and we will fix it!

If fish were not killed like the skag pike thread then people might, just might give more info...

I was mostly just asking for info on where spring lake is. Just thought I would state my reasoning for you all. Anyone know?

There are two different "spring lakes" in Colorado. One is near yampa (found it here on good old fish explorer just like mentioned the first time you asked) and one is north west of chambers lake by the top of Cameron pass you have to hike to it. Found it with the navigator app on my iPhone it took all of 5 seconds. Way to put forth some effort and take advice lol!

Kev-o, not all of the lakes are available to whitehook due to not being an plus member. Another good reason to pay the minimal amount and support the site.
