Fishing on Shadow Mountain Lake

Friday I spent fishing on Shadow Mountain Lake with family and friends! We rented a 10 person pontoon boat from Trail Ridge Marina for a half day of trolling on the lake.
Shadow Mountain Lake and Grand Lake are connected and run along US 34 just a few miles north of Lake Granby. The lakes are famous for producing large mackinaws [lake trout], rainbows, browns, and kokanee salmon. Our group caught two nicely sized salmon which we released. What a great day on the water!
