I would like to stay within an hour and a half from Denver. Thanks for any help you can provide.
No, I don't tie, I'm not sure I would it, especially since I don't have any feeling in my left thumb do to a work incident with a table saw. I have a tendency to drop stuff.
As for the fishing. Let's see; there's Bear Creek that runs out of Evergreen Lake and the lake itself. I heard they put Northern Pike in the lake recently. Clear Creek west of Golden is close. Boulder Creek has some good fishing right in the town. None of these spots have large fish, but their easy to catch and a lot of fun.
