I wouldn't say completely full but yes it it's full. There is no water in the rivers so the lakes are not filling up. All the lakes are gonna have to wait till the farmers get their share.

Water has been coming in thru the inlet ditch for several days now. The lake is darn close to max full. If water continues to flow in, I'm guessing the outlet will be opened, and water will soon be flowing into Horseshoe. (And speaking of Horseshoe.....last Tues and Wed, I caught somewhere between 60-70 crappies. BIG crappies. Today, nothing. Nada. Well, did catch one small walleye. Where in the heck did all those fish go?)

Jim, Horseshoe is directly west of Boyd Lake. Many years ago, Horseshoe was open to the public. Not now. The homeowners association now controls the rec rights. However, there are a few spots where the public is allowed to fish. North end, across from the diary. East side, along the rocky dam. ( Zero parking there.) Southeast corner. And the inlet area.

Yes, all fish caught from shore. Minnows and jigs.

I have been fishing that lake for 60+ years. Caught some huge catfish, a few walleye, and a truckload of crappie and white bass. Like any lake, if you hit it at just the right time, the fishing can be fantastic.

Thank you for the heads up-its tough to make a trip up their with all the new traffic. I didn't know Horseshoe would start producing so soon, are they on the dairy side or the south side?

JAX in Loveland or head Bennette's bait shop in Berthoud.

The new Scheels also sells minners.

Fished the Loveland inlet til late, late the past 2 nights. Let's see....5 walleye, 15 1/2 hrs of tossing jigs, plus a second rod with crawlers.....not a very impressive catch rate.
