Harvard Lakes

Fishing Info

Just west of Buena Vista, Harvard Lakes sit at the base of Mt. Harvard and Columbia. These lakes are located at a lower elevation than some on this list, meaning they are typically the first to open in the area. This 5.8-mile round-trip hike is a somewhat popular option for non-fishing recreationists, so you may not be alone up there... 

Current Conditions

Iced-Off and accessible! Be aware of afternoon storms at this elevation, and watch for spawning fish. Otherwise, have at it!
