Even when the lakes begin to freeze, fishing season isn’t over. Imagine the serenity of fishing amidst the snow and ice during a beautiful Colorado winter. Grand Lake and Lake Granby are home to some of the largest lake trout in the Rocky Mountains, and, luckily, the trout don’t hibernate, so you can keep fishing all year long!
