Located on the border of the Flat Tops Wilderness Area, and at over 10,000 feet elevation, Trapper's is one of Colorado's most beautiful natural lakes, as well as being the second largest natural lake in Colorado. The 200 acres of water is home to a wild strain of cutthroat trout, and offers the angler productive fishing throughout the summer. This lake holds the largest population of native Colorado River cutthroat trout in the world! This lake is also a fish source for hatcheries around the country.
Many of the more remote areas around the lake are restricted to foot or horse travel only. Canoes and float tubes will help provide access to these areas. Crystal clear waters afford many sight fishing opportunities. Dry fly fishing can be superb when the lake is calm.
Hand-propelled craft may be rented from the lodge nearby.
This reservoir has been set aside by the Colorado Division of Wildlife as Wild Trout Water.
Contains: Native Cutthroats.
