Lake: Shadow Mountain Reservoir

Stupid question

Post By: The Fishing Junky      Posted: 12/4/2020 12:35:24 PM     Points: 64    
So my buddy has a cabin up on shadow mountain we stay at when we go up to fish Granby. The cabin is right next to shadow mountain and overlooks the lake. Iíve always wondered why I never see anyone Ice fishing that lake. I see people riding their snow machines, but I never see anyone ice fishing it, why is that? Does that lake have small fish or something?

I always heard it was shallow with strong currents pumping water into Grand so a little sketchy.

It's a mud hole full of rainbows.

They stay closer to the boat ramp area... I've hooked a few nice browns around that area

I have seen some people on the N E corner closer to shore.

In 22 year of fishing my buddy Paul said he's never felt danger of water fluctuation but then hes only doing it before February. The lake is shallow as all until the part where it meets the outlet area I think for the most part it's full of easy to catch stockers that'll take any lure you throw at them. I've taken my kayak out and casted kastmasters and tubes and even jerkbaits and have done really well.

Like Wattz said there are a few brute browns that made their way from the canal or deep water into the shallows during the early morning. I think according to CPW they have seen a self sustain brown trout population for sometime now.
