Eleven Mile Canyon Fishing

The fishing trip to Cheeseman Canyon was a bust, but that was not the case at the Eleven Mile Canyon, near Lake George, Colorado.

Rainbow Trout at Eleven Mile Canyon

First Day on the River

We arrive at the South Platte River in the Eleven Mile Canyon early in the afternoon. We didn’t catch a single trout at Cheeseman Canyon so we were hopeful for a good change to our fishing trip.

We picked a remote camp site and headed down to the river. Mike jumped out of the truck and threw his line into the river and before I could get to him with my camera equipment, he had already caught two rainbow trout.

Mike ended up catching between 10 and 15 rainbow trout on this half day of fishing. See some of the photos below of the catches and also the video at the bottom of this article.
