Rainbow Lake reports

Andy Idema (aidema) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: Hiked/fished rainbow lake just outside of Walden, Colorado. Perfect temps... bout 75 and sunny and the water was clear and cold. Caught many really nice cutthroats. In order to catch the fish in the lake you need to wait until evening and wade out about 50 feet where the fish are in casting range. (08/22/10)
Andy Idema (aidema) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: Fished Rainbow Lake for a short time this past weekend (10/17). Tons of rising trout! Wish I could have spent more time. Landed two decent fish 1 rainbow 1 cutt and missed another fish. Saw some small mayflies and definitely a lot of caddis. They were not very selective... never switched from a size 18 Adams.
