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.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
