This 5 acre lake is the perfect place for anglers wishing to learn how to fish stillwater effectively. With a strong bug life and abundant numbers of flathead minnows, the consistency of the fish caught here is great. Fish average anywhere from 12-20 inches with some browns that are considerably larger. Float tubes are very useful here because of the willow covered shoreline. If you have been hoping to learn lake tactics, look no further than Empire Lake to get you started. Empire begins fishing in late April and is generally fishable until well into October making it an ideal Spring, Summer, and Fall destination option! The close proximity of this destination to Boulder makes it even more appealing. Empire Lake is also a great option when the rivers are high during Spring runoff.
Pricing includes all necessary equipment; rods, reels, waders, boots, flies, etc. as well as transportation, rod fees, and lunch on full days. As with all Front Range Angler Private Water trips, the only two things not included are guide gratuity and Colorado fishing licenses for the day.
