Wind 5-15mph sporadic gusts
Water Clarity: light/medium stain from wind
Air temp: weather guy said 68 high…felt like 72 around 1PM
Water temp: OMG for LMB
Now is the time to really work in the Lunch Bang for warm water. A lot of workaday folks in the metro area have a local watering hole that is only worth hitting right now. Scout it, fish it, you might be surprised.
This fish would have hit anything. Dark or flashy colors to compensate for water stain were obvious choices as soon as you saw the chop on the water and erosion. I dig the jig and with the clay bottom I was all about throwing the jig combos. Throw what you love with confidence and you will catch fish.
Two of my favorite lunch bang spots have pretty much gone belly up. If things don’t bounce back mark my words I am going to quit this place and get a job where the fishing is better.
Maybe somewhere closer to Boulder or DTC...for a good lunch bang you need a great watering hole within a 5 to 15 minute drive. That way you can get at least 15 to 30 minutes worth of casting in. I would work as a janitor in a gigantic crap factory if the fishing was good close by!
