Recently stocked, these lakes are fishing well and are an ideal destination for the beginner or young ones getting a start in fly-fishing. Mayflies and midges are the most active bugs, but many of these fish will take a small streamer as well.
Located just off the stream channel in lower Chalk Creek canyon, Chalk and Wrights Lakes are put-and-take fisheries that are ideal for beginning fly anglers, children or anyone who wants to catch some fish when river conditions are unfishable. Chalk Lake is just west of the San Isabel National Forest boundary on County Road 162 and has a USFS campground adjacent to it. Wrights Lake is a State Wildlife Area on County Road 289 just a little west of the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs.
