Default Looking for a new spot...

hey fellas... I'm looking for a few new spots to check out in the next few weeks... I'm wanting to catch either some nice cutthroats or brookies... Not asking for your favorite spots just a direction to check out...

Although I am sure that you have fished it but the Dream Stream is a great stretch that offers the ability to catch many species of trout and large ones at that! You could also head to the Yampa although that is not southern, CO

I hear the koke's are running hard over in Gunnison. The Taylor is also fishing pretty well. Not cutts or brookies, but lots of fun.

With the recent rains some of those small creeks may be still blown out. And snow in the high country might have put any cutts down.

I would head to Buena Vista and check out Cottonwood Creek flowing into Cottonwood Lake. If you go up high enough you will run into several beaver ponds filled with cutts and brookies. Also check out Ptarmigan Lake and Denny Creek. They are all in the same area, just on different sides of Jones Mountain.

Another option would be to fish the Conejos River to your south west.
