I live in Alamosa and just fished Smith yesterday, The lake is stocked annually with rainbows and many grow fat as footballs. It is shallow (deepest part is 12ft) and weed growth can get bad by mid summer. If shore fishing, watch out for rattlesnakes they can be thick in the covered areas. If you are boat fishing trolling is very productive as long as you stay out of the weeds. Small rapalas, flat fish and Tazmanian devils work great! Wind can come in quickly and can whitecap without warning. But when calm, you can catch a lot and what a view of Mt. Blanca!
