Meant to post this a week ago. Took the kiddo up to Rampart to go fishing for the 1st time. Beautiful lake, beautiful area, and the road getting up to the dam was bad at all. We didn't catch anything, came close on a few. The family near us was HAMMERING, I think they caught about 10 trout total (12inches or bigger on each of the ones I saw).
Popular bait from shore seemed to be powerbait, there were a few boats and kayakers out on the water, They seemed to be getting good fish too, although I am not sure what they were using.
Overall I really enjoyed this Reservoir and I will be going back up to fish it again very soon. Might even take my Kayak out with me the next time.
