OPENING SUMMER 2015: 11 MILE MARINA OUTFITTERS ADVENTURE CAMP IN THE BACK COUNTRY OF ELEVEN MILE STATE PARK.

Just bring your clothes and sleeping bag.

Additional outdoor adventures available  will include rock climbing, kayaking/canoeing, boating, hiking and just plain relaxing in our secluded site overlooking Fresh Water Cove and Deer Island with a spectactular panoramic view from inside Pike National Forest.

ITS GLAMPING! (Glamorous Camping). For those that don't have the equipment or time to prepare a world class wildnerness experience but really want to go. Two night/three day packages starting from $149.00 per person.  Camp will open July 1. The site is also perfect for Corporate and Team Building activities.  Reservations required. Rates and additional information to be posted on a new page soon. For questions and inquiries call 719-748-0317.

CURRENT CONDITIONS: The lake remains ice capped for the most part with thickness running 8 to 15 inches The edges have gotten very soft in many places with water appearing along the Marina North Shore Cove. Cross Creek inlet area growing daily with open water expanding. Shoreline fishing opportunities are limited and as is the case this time of year can change on an hourly basis. Open water can freeze back up over night or floating ice can move in on what was previously an open area. It was cold last night and most areas froze back up.  Desperate ice anglers who hate the sight of melting ice can access Coyote Ridge for Corral Cove and Parking Lot Cove for that final fix until next year. Desperate shore and night anglers who crave first ice off can ring the lake looking for just the right spot that may or may not be there.  People ask when will the lake open for boating? Only Mother Nature and Park Manager Kevin Tobey know for sure. Management looks for all ice to be gone even down by the dam as ice can easily shift and float out creating boating hazards. It looks like there can be some limited shore opportunities this weekend.

TROUT:GOOD: The bite was definately on this last week with lots of action for most anglers. They certainly were in the shallows with 2 to 6 feet of water being best. We are clearly in a transition between seasons. We do believe the mountain folk call it mud season. There may or may not be shoreline fishing opportunities this weekend.More Spring Break at the Mile

KOKANEE SALMON: Time Out

NORTHERN PIKE:POOR: Well this had to be one of the poorest winter Pike bites in recent memory. Its easy to say they are full of stockers but they weren't biting even before the stocking program began. What's the reason, who knows. If we knew those secrets we would be rich and gone.

SPARKLE TUBE ALERT: ANOTHER FULL HERMETICALLY SEALED JAR OF PINK BERKLEY SPARKLE TUBES (15) HAS MYSTERIOUSLY APPEARED IN THE MARINA STORE FUN HOUSE CLAW MACHINE. $.50 a try!

CURRENT CONDITIONS: Warmer than normal daytime temperatures did not hurt the ice cap much at all this week because there was no wind. Some very minor shoreline melting around the rocks. The majority of the shoreline is solid for access. Three inches of snow last night and currently snowing. We punched a lot of holes this week and average ice thickness was 15 inches. Snow not really accumulating on the roads. Caution advised around shoreline at Witchers Cove and North Shore by the rocks. There is no shoreline fishing available currently. Cross Creek and North Shore will be the first more than likely. Boating is when all the ice is gone as determined by CPW. Mid April?

TROUT:GOOD: The bite seems to be back on. We had more good days than bad this past week. Lots of stockers getting in the way but it keeps you busy until the next bruiser moves through. We have concentrated in extremely shallow water from Stoll Mountain to Corral Cove looking for sandy bottoms holding spawning fish and there are plenty. Howbert Point has also been good. When we say extrememly shallow we are talking two feet of water. As weird as it feels  to be there you'll get use to soon enough after you start catching fish. They have hit many different baits and it seems to change through out the day. Yes you can still pound a spoon in two feet. In fact you need to pound the bottom and lay your offering directly on the bottom and they will suck it up. Black Marabou jig in 1/8 size has caught some nice ones. Super fun to watch and even if you fell through (which you won't) you are only in two feet of water, basically only up to your knees. Low risk high reward. Trophy fish are waiting for you.

KOKANEE SALMON: POOR TO POORER: Its sad that the best action here are in the memories of days gone by. Look for a couple here and a couple there but it sure is a lot of work for little benefit. You can get lucky and hit a spot that works but that is the exception not the rule. And hardly a Trout to be had while you wait for an elusive school.

NORTHERN PIKE:POOR: You would think it would be time for them to turn on. Too much food down there for them. If viewing big Northern's counted for anything you could call the action Excellent. But getting even the small ones to bite is not an easy task. We're stumped. Best thing is try EVERYTHING, but try it in shallow water like 4 feet or less. A few llittle ones have been caught maybe thats a sign.

FULL CABELA'S COLORADO CLASSIC CONTEST RESULTS POSTED ON THE RESULTS LINK SOON

CURRENT CONDITIONS: Although it has been warm there has been little or no wind for days and days. No doubt we will pay for the calm down the road this Spring but for now it has been extremely helpful to the ice cap. With just the right amount of snow on the lake the melting this week has been minimal with thickness still holding at 10 to 20 inches. No problems with the edges yet and Thursday looks to be a cloudy day with a few inches of snow predicted for tonight. That would be very helpful for protecting the ice cap. This weekend looks to be a great Spring ice fishing opportunity. Depending on the weather we should at least be able to ice fish through next weekend. We have already had plenty of calls from folks looking and hoping for open water. We got a late start this winter and the serious ice anglers want that ice to stick around just a little bit longer.

TROUT:FAIR: If the contest proved anything it was that many big fish are in just a tiny bit of water. As hard as it is to fish currently super shallow produces more big fish than other depths. Deeper water has seen some improvement in its action but the Trophies are hugging the shore line. Imagine during early ice off when you stand on shore and see fish swim by right on the shore. Well thats how close they are now. Bait is not the only tool of late as the Sparkle Tube proved to be a hot jig catching at least two of the bigger fish. Spawn sacks, nightcrawler and even Power Bait have been effective.

KOKANEE SALMON: POOR: Its sad that the best action here are in the memories of days gone by. Look for a couple here and a couple there but it sure is a lot of work for little benefit. You can get lucky and hit a spot that works but that is the exception not the rule.

NORTHERN PIKE:POOR: Not a single fish weighed in at the contest. Are you kidding, now thats poor. No change here. If viewing big Northern's counted for anything you could call the action Excellent. But getting even the small ones to bite is not an easy task. We're stumped. Best thing is try EVERYTHING, but try it in shallow water like 4 feet or less.

MARINA MARCH MADNESS March 7 THIS WEEKEND! FUN FUN FUN

After two weeks of Winter Saturday looks to be perfect Marina March Madness weather. Report calls for mild temperatures and minimal wind. Sign up day of the event if your not already in and have some fun, maybe win some cash.

WATER FLOW: 46.4 CFS IN   59.7 CFS OUT

SPARKLE TUBE ALERT: ANOTHER FULL HERMETICALLY SEALED JAR OF PINK BERKLEY SPARKLE TUBES (15) HAS MYSTERIOUSLY APPEARED IN THE MARINA STORE FUN HOUSE CLAW MACHINE.

CURRENT CONDITIONS: The ice is probably in better shape than it was a month ago. Look for thickness running 11 to 21 inches with decent firmness. Fresh snow on the lake running about four inches to drifts making treking not so much fun. All fishing access areas are open.

TROUT:FAIR TO GOOD: One thing is certain. Fish shallow water and we don't mean 5 to 10. It may be hard for you to do it but 2 to 4 feet is where you need to be to catch the bigger fish. Stocker action around the lake. Hot spots are Howbert Point, Sucker Cove, Stoll Mtn and North Shore. Ice off type baits working well. Smaller jigs like Tiny Tots or just a meal worm. When you fish in that shallow water you do need to be very quite. Any big noise can spook the fish. And don't let them see that ugly face of yours, that really scares them.The Eleven Mile limit. Two Trout over 16 inches, and how.

KOKANEE SALMON: POOR: Its sad that the best action here are in the memories of days gone by. Look for a couple here and a couple there but it sure is a lot of work for little benefit. You can get lucky and hit a spot that works but that is the exception not the rule.

NORTHERN PIKE:POOR: No change here. If viewing big Northern's counted for anything you could call the action Excellent. But getting even the small ones to bite is not an easy task. We're stumped. Best thing is try EVERYTHING, but try it in shallow water like 4 feet or less.
