Yes, there are lakes closer to Montrose to ice fish. And you might catch more fish and maybe bigger fish elsewhere. So what? Part of fishing fun is the variety of places to go.
Colorado is great for lots of fishing choices.
Vega State Park and Reservoir is one of those places. Within a two-hour drive, itís not real far from Montrose, but far enough that you donít just happen to go there when Blue Mesa is so close. You have to just decide that Vega is where you are headed, then get there.
