      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+”.

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  9. Good day of fishing the River with my friend Chet! I ended up catching 28 Trout all on a Fire Craw Dynamic J-Spec Jerkbait! My last fish of the day was my biggest ...more fish a decent 25” Lake Trout in the strong River current! I mostly caught decent Browns in the 16-18 1/2” range.

    1. Bryan Harper 0
      You’re welcome! The JSpec is a great all around 3” Jerkbait that weighs 5/16 oz and dives to 4’
