      this was actually back in early July, but I just joined the site & so posted it now.
  2. I went to turquoise about 500 yards east of damn on Southside. We caught our limit in about 2 hours. I had to use bait as opposed to lures as the wind was blowing ...more 20 miles per hour. trout were hitting on everything I put out worms, Power Bait, floating marshmallows. range from 12 to 16 inches. the lake is very low probably due to expected runoff. hit it now.

  3. Details: Largemouth Bass

  4. According to locals, fishing is flat. There were very few fish caught this past weekend. Water level has been stable for several weeks, but the August doldrums have ...more set in and the catch rate has dropped to slow. Catch rate from boats is a little better than shore. Catching seems to improve a little during and right after rains showers. Report courtesy of www.kansasangler.com and Zeiner’s Bass Shop.

  6. Turquoise's water level continues to rise and now appears more respectable as a fishing and boating reservoir. Catching is still good, but varies from time to ...more time during the cay and from spot to spot. Bait of all kinds and spinner type lures still the most used for trout. The boat ramp is open and functioning normally. Report courtesy of www.kansasangler.com, Zeiner’s Bass Shop.

  7. Turquoise is filling, but the water level is not quite to the bottom of the boat ramp. The ramp is still closed. Check with the USFS Leadville District Ranger office ...more at 719-486-0749 for ramp opening info. Fishing is good for catchable size and larger trout with spinners and all baits.
