This report, done by professionals, illustrates our calculations were on track with the actual population. We are currently working with biologists to come up with a new possession limit for lake trout on Grand Lake to insure we have these monster fish in the future!
For the last 3 years Rocky Mountain Outfitters has conducted a study on the lake trout population of Grand Lake. Our findings were not what we had hoped. We concluded a population of 1800 lake trout left. This summer the Colorado Parks and Wildlife conducted their own more thorough study. Early estimates are in the 2000-2500 range. Let's get the population back up by practicing catch and release.
