It's officially hardwater season, as Elevenmile Reservoir is frozen! This is a great place to try ice fishing, but we won't see open water again here until the Spring.
Elevenmile Reservoir is the heart of South Park fishing. This amazing fishery can challenge anglers mostly because it is so big and it can be hard to locate fish. The reservoir has rainbow trout, brown trout, cutthroat trout, kokanee salmon, carp, and northern pike. The average fish caught is around 16 inches but because of the size and depth of the reservoir combined with how abundant nutrients are, Elevenmile can grow very large trout and pike. There are great facilities including a shower at the main office for campers. A daily state parks pass for Elevenmile is 7 dollars.
This is an area we specialize and are permitted to guide in, so give us a shot if you have any question or if you interested in allowing one of our Orvis Endorsed Guides show you how best to conquer Elevenmile Reservoir.
