Do you love ice fishing? Have you ever fished Lake Granby or Grand Lake? Ice fishing is a very popular activity in the Three Lakes area every weekend of the winter. Expect to always see gatherings of warmly dressed figures out on the ice every day. Success stories are shared on facebook all the time, and attract the interest of fishermen country wide.
Our area is great for beginners too. If you want some guidance or need to rent your equipment, contact Rocky Mountain Outfitters right here in Grand Lake. They will share their love of ice-fishing with you as well as their skills and tips. We have two ice-fishing contests coming up in the next 2 months and all skill levels are welcome. Try your hand at it!
The Rapids Lodge is a great place to stay for these occasions, especially for the Grand Lake contest where you can walk just 2 very short blocks down to the ice. We have condos and suites that accommodate 3 fishing buddies or more very comfortably. Your dogs are welcome in Rapids Suites 1+2+3+4. Follow up a day on the ice with a great meal at the Rapids Restaurant, next to the fire and overlooking the frozen Tonahutu Creek.
