Bringing the news of Pike Trails to the land
owners, locally, state, and nation wide
The goal of this web site is to let our land owners know what is happening in one of the nicest parts of Colorado and to bring suggestions as to how those folks living here, especially those living here full time, need to be prepared for those few times when the weather can prove challenging. For those living here, if you see something of interest to the rest of the community, please contact the PTRIA web master at firstname.lastname@example.org with your information.
Today, the two Trout Lane ponds were stocked with about 160# of rainbow trout. Ten in each pond were 13" - 15" with the remainder running 9" - 12". Have fun fishing.
Today the ice on the Trout Lane lower pond finished melting. Both ponds are now ice free.
This morning the Trout Lane upper pond was about 98% covered with ice. By day's end, the pond was ice free. Now that's dramatic. Ironically, last year the ice left the upper pond also on March 16. And thanks to the aeration system at the lower pond, that pond is about 10% to 20% ice free. It will take a bit longer though before it's 100% clear of ice.
