Rampart Resevoir fishing

I made the trek down to the fishing hole this morning and the fish were biting really good. I caught 3 on different power bait and one on salmon eggs.

I have not seen Rampart this low since the drought of 2002.

Was this recent? Thereís seriously no ice on Rampart? And did you take the hiking trail to get there?

xavierk31, These pictures were taken yesterday and I did walk down Rainbow Gulch trail to get there. There is ice on Rampart but where the inlet comes into the lake there will always be open water. I was a little concerned if the creek would be shut off and if that was the case the lake might be all the way frozen over. The creek was shut off for a few months last summer for repairs to the delivery system coming from the creek and the news report said the creek would be shut off until the winter time.

Sweet thatís good to know. Is the inlet normally a good place to start? Iím hoping to get up there this spring to try and pop a couple spring Lakers.

xavierk31, The first fish that I caught was a lake trout.

Thanks for the update. I was hoping to head there this weekend the 13th to be precise. I'm wanting to take my kids ice fishing. Do you think the ice is this enough, or should I just hit Antero or another place?

Thanks

Thanks X. I'm new to the area. We have only been on Grand Lake and it was a bit slow. Sorry all, didn't mean to hijack the thread.
