Thanks Randall, I spoke today with the folks at Duranglers, There are a couple of regulated tailwaters in the area and as you said, some high lakes. I fished the frontrange north of Denver last June and caught a ton of fish around Frazier and Grandby. Looking forward to the trip. Hopefully will get back down to GSMNP sometime in May.
BTW- Caught ( and released ) about 50 fish out of Sulphur Springs last week after it was stocked. Mainly on a 16#BHPT
