Stocker Bow Saturday 5-23

(Above: “Everything is coming up rainbows!” typical bow for the day. With a better camera perhaps the color quality would have been better.)

Scouting some new fishing waters up in the Woodland Park area and got into some decent stocker bows. Rainbow trout can be very beautiful fish and fun to catch. They taste pretty good as well so the Division of Wildlife stocks them in abundance. This location has only rainbow trout, which is a bit of a buzzkill. A few other places also have a decent population of brown trout that get very aggressive as well as fairly large. This addition adds another element of diversity and action in my opinion.

The main goal was to find the place and figure out the entrance. Scouting the lake was important for later trips where ColoradoCasters may try to put on a MADshow episode with pontoons or even a camping expedition. It was also good to take a break from the warm water bass scene that had been tormenting so much and get a taste of some high country trout action. Either way it was a nice change of pace.

Good Luck and Good Fishing.
