Check out Big Creek Lake(s), there is a upper and lower and I know they have Tigers in there, Walden will be your closest town, not sure where you will be. I believe it is about 40 mile drive that will put you near the Wy. / Co. border.

We have Elk hunted up there for many years but I have never fished the lake.

I found a couple pictures I took a few years ago when we were out driving around before season opened.

Can't imagine too many other places I would like to be other than somewhere in this picture on a blue bird day in the fall in Colorado.

Hope you have good fishing! Give us a report if you happen to make it up there, pictures are good too.....

If you want, google up North Park Anglers, they have some current reports on there, might be a place to call if you looking for more lakes with Tigers in them, they might know where some might be.

I will be fishing there next week...(July 9th-12th)) Ive seen a few Tigers at Big Creek, mainly in the river that flows out out of the lower lake, Theres a spillway there and a bridge that crosses the river.....fish the undercut banks below that bridge.

It was another great trip.....We caught ALOT of decent fish, the biggest was one a 22in. Rainbow. The Big Creek area fish the LOVE large ugly dry flies....#10 yellow Stimulators were the ticket. If you more specifics on locations email me at the address below.

    • LOL Then YOU my friend are the one who jumped to conclusions in your last post because that was a direct quote from the post you were replying to. You did say it was NOT a joke, right?
    • Finally saw a few divers myself today.  In town.    Yah, I don't think it would make much of a difference if they let us just keep going.  
    • Whoooaaa...slow down big fella. Of course I do not think one party is any more "evil" than the other.  I don't think ANY of them are evil, they just have, more or less, different basic principles. You my friend,  have some serious attitude problems and seem to be very prone to jumping to conclusions and letting your paranoid tendency's run away with you. I have many friends on both sides of the two MAJOR parties and have worked with a couple of genuine Libertarians too. I can only recall a couple individuals I would consider might be "evil" in your sense of the word. Shucks,   I don't even think YOU are evil.   Ha Ha HA!
    • Salami ready to eat. 1/2 goose.....1/2 beef. Much firmer than using pork.Love this seasoning. Garlic, smoke and peppercorns. I always add extra garlic to it. Lately I have gone to using powdered smoke. 1 tsp. per pound of meat. Gives me a consistent flavor every time. No guessing how much smoke to have. Also allows to use the oven inside instead of out in the cold.   Summer sausage in the oven now while I watch football.  
    • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             You might want to read what was actually typed:     Do you really believe your side is good and the other is evil? If you do, that's the part that is a big joke.
    • below is a link for doing pork loin jerky. you can use any whole meat for this.       click here :)
    • Nice conspiracy theory.  So how come after they tested additional thousands of deer they didn't find any more, if they were looking for an excuse?      What were you expecting as far as policing the borders?  How many folks would be necessary, and how on earth would they do it?   But whatever.  You sound just like those guys back in the day over by Madison Wisconsin that had big money in their deer hunting land and raising trophy bucks.  No way were they going to kill a bunch of their deer.    And look at it now.  30 percent infection levels.     It's like AIS.   They are doing what they can within the limits of budget, manpower, and politics.     Look at the map of cwd infested counties in Wisconsin... I posted it up above.   Do you want Minnesota to look like that?  Do you want to eat deer with CWD?
