Looking for ice fishing buddy-South Denver

Post By: Jolly Roger      Posted: 11/29/2022 11:19:53 AM     Points: 0    
I would like to meet an or some ice fishing buddies that live in vicinity of I-470 and Quebec (South Denver) to join me on day trips (I prefer not to go alone). I am retired so available most any time and on short notice. I have all of the equipment, enough for 2. If interested please text me at 720-289-2107, thanks, Roger

What bodies do you like to fish?

I mostly go day trips to 11 Mile and/or Antero, and to the local lakes here around Denver when they freeze up (Chatfield, Cherry Creek, Aurora). I'm thinking about going to 11 mile tomorrow (Thursday) because looks like the weather will be good and sounds like the catching is good right now plus ice is now at 6 inches.

I'm in COS and 11 mile and Antero are my primary bodies of water for open water and ice fishing. I am only able to fish on weekends sometimes but I sure could meet you sometimes. I'm like you for ice fishing and hate to go alone even if there are people out fishing. I wait for 8" or better personally, I had a bad experience at Chatfield and one at Tarryall with 6" but was able to escape without issue.

I am 16 years from retirement but glad you are enjoying yours for sure :)

I'm in Conifer, so I do a bunch of Tarryall and Antero. I target lakers as soon as those lakes are ready. I have Sun-Tue off, but usually don't go out on weekends. I want to hit Jefferson pretty hard this year for close to home laker fishing. I like Chatty through the ice, but have never iced CC or Aurora. I'm game if any of that sounds good. I'll be hitting Dillon for the next couple of weeks for the Koke run though.

Great! We can connect and do some fishin'! Currently I broke my foot and wearing a dam boot but I should be out of that mid December.

Thanks Dale(swede1), jkboom, dasflikken for your responses. Dale, If you still plan to go to 11 Mile next Thursday I'd like to join you, weather and ice permitting. I have an appointment that day but I think I can change it. If you want, please text me at 720-289-2107 and we can make some plans to meet up. Also jkaboom and dasflikken, please feel free to text me at above number so we can keep in contact and maybe meet up later this season, it's still early. It's always good to go with a fishing buddy, for the companionship but also for safety. Thanks, Roger
