-Fishing times are 9 am – 4 pm, unless other arrangements have been made.

Special Considerations:

-All fishing is catch and release.

Location: Hygiene, Colorado at 6917 Hygiene Road, Longmont, CO 80503.

-Car pooling is encouraged; details can be worked out on each individual trip.  Dave has a van that can accommodate three passengers and gear.

-There are three lakes available to fishing, however, we will probably only fish the northern most lake, Jenna Lake.  This lake has the most convenient shore access as well as boat access. Probably, the safest lake for the veterans with a good population of large mouth bass, crappie and bluegills.

-The largest most westerly lake has a boat ramp and some shore access, fishing is a little more challenging in reference to success, however the lake also has small mouth bass and walleye as well as large mouth bass, crappie and bluegill.

-The most easterly lake is best fished from a float tube, with very limited shore access and no boat access.  This lake does have all of the same species of fish as the western lake, I usually catch the largest bass in this lake.  All lakes also have catfish, but hard to catch on a fly.

Fishing: Both top water and sub-surface fishing is productive at these lakes, ideal for float tubes, individual pontoon boats and other personal water craft.

-Drift boats and small boats with electric motors are allowed on Jenna Lake.

-Bass boats with gas motors can be used on the western lake as well as the water craft allowed at Jenna Lake.

-PFD’s are required to be worn with all personal water craft (float tubes, drift boats, canoe, etc).

Suggested Flies: Top-water flies include poppers, foam body hoppers, beetles and deer-hair flies. Sub-surface flies include Jawbreakers, streamers, clousers, pine-squirrel leeches and woolly buggers.

-Of course, flies anglers have used in the past with success for warm water fishing is encouraged.

Dave explains fishing tactics for warm water species in a float tube.

Restroom:  A handicap accessible portable restroom that can accommodate a wheel chair will be available at Jenna Lake.  There are no restroom facilities at the other two lakes.

Trash:  All trash must be removed from the lakes after each trip.
