Hey Guys, do any of you guys know how far away from the inlet is legal to fish ?? can you walk down the blue sky trail and get to the area you can fish legal. Thanks...

This is the only thing I can find on the CPW site.

Water: Horsetooth Reservoir

Fishing regulations:
The minimum size for smallmouth bass is 12 inches in length.

Fishing is prohibited in the inlet area as posted from March 15 through May 31.

Look for the buoys and signs. You could walk down that way and along the shoreline to get there, as the Blue Sky trail itself does not go to the water. Some anglers do that. Easier access would be from the other (north) side, through the marina entrance since you could park in the boat ramp parking lot. Both the Blue Sky parking lot and the marina parking lot are the same price, both Larimer County park.
