1. Chet my friend Lee and his wife Ingrid went back to the same lake today where Chet caught the 5 lb Bass yesterday and Lee’s wife Ingrid caught this 19” pig brood ...more stock Bow! Look at how small the tail is in comparison to the rest of the body!

  2. I was out today fishing on the outskirts of Grand Jct,Co at a small lake with temps in the upper 30’s! This lake has stocker Bows with a few brood stocked Bows,,Largemouth,Gills,and ...more Shad! We caught some stocker bows to 16” when Chet stuck this 21” 5+ lb Largie on a 1/8 oz Crappie Jig! Winter time drag stripping beauty!

      Scott-There’s a few Rainbows that get up to 5lbs in this part of the River with a slim chance of getting an 8-10 lb Rainbow. Browns can get upwards to 22+”.

  5. Chilly but good day of catching some quality Browns and Bows on the Colorado River just west of Glenwood Springs.We caught a total of 35 Trout between us! Lee Adams ...more got the biggest with a 20” & 19” Brown on a Brook Trout Dynamic JSpec while I ended catching a 19 1/2” & a 18 1/2” Brown as well as a fat 18 1/2” Bow on a Firecraw Dynamic JSpec! Here’s my best fish!

  6. I fished the Gunnison River today with my friend Chet! The flows were around 1000 with winter water levels higher than I’ve seen in a few years! Started off with ...more some Sun but turned out to be mostly cloudy and chilly! I started my day off with the nicest fish of the day being my first fish that I caught on a Rapala Countdown presented on a slow crank 10 ft from shore! We caught a few on Crappie/Hair Jigs but the bite was still dominated by slow popping Jerkbaits(Dynamic Fire Craw and Brown Trout)! I ended up landing 30 and Chet caught 23!
