: CHARETTE LAKES: Fishing from boats was very good using PowerBait for rainbow trout up to 20 inches. Fishing was fair to good using 3/16-ounce gold and silver spoons for crappie. Fishing from the bank was slow. There was heavy vegetation along the shoreline and the water level was quite low.

The Charette Lakes, on a mesa
southwest of Springer, are actually in Mora County, but accessible from Colfax
County's Hwy 569. These lakes offer good fishing for 10-to-14-inch rainbows and
Charette Lakes are closed November 1 until March 1 to accommodate migrating waterfowl.
