Mills Lake for Rainbows and Brook Trout

 

Kimball and Les Beery hiked to Mills Lake, Jewell Lake and Dream Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park recently to catch a few trout and see how the brook and rainbow trout populations are sorting out the Mills Lake habitat. Back in the day, the rainbows held the lake, and the brookies were mostly found in the inlet above Jewell Lake. Now, they’ve become more integrated with rainbows above Jewell Lake and some brook trout down in Mills. These were fine days for a hike and some fishing before the snow arrives in the high country.
