The high altitude lakes and streams here in Eagle County also hold many great fish, especially cut-throats, a beautiful native fish that Coloradoans love to catch.? Often the fish at the higher altitudes do not get fished as often, and are easier to catch.? Dry flies, wet flies, nymphs and streamers can all be successful depending on the time of year, or even the time of day.? If you’re feeling fit, its worth a short (or sometimes longer) hike into any of the East Vail hikes that lead to a lake.? (Booth Lake, Pitkin Lake etc.)? The fish will be cruising the shore just waiting to bite the end of your line!
