Default And so it begins ...

As usual the CPW lied again! I was told by multiple sources that the nets would not go in Rifle Gap until April and miraculously they put them in today! From fishing it the last few days and seeing where the walleyes are I'm guessing their success rate with the nets will be pretty low this year because of where they have placed them. They are however in prime smallmouth areas and will definitely reach havoc on the smallie population.

I hate to hear that. Only hope is that they miss a lot of them or the fish can manage to stay away from the nets. Thanks for the update!

I'm hoping that the big females got of one last spawn on the full moon.

For me it's not worth the aggravation anymore, they've proven they will do whatever they want and that they can't be trusted.

The environmental groups are well imbedded within the Colorado govt. I see this as a growing trend. They have a method and means to allow these CPW introduced walleyes to exist in Rifle Gapp but simply refuse to consider all the alternatives which would allow this fishery to exist.. They rather sell out to these environmental special interest groups. No wonder our CPW is having financial issues...

This is all about USFW and CPW jobs and funding. That's it. If they really wanted to save the sucker, they should remove Hoover Dam. Let's see how that goes over. Instead, we pay taxes and buy fishing licences to support STUPID management programs.

Nice fish! Do you have any more pictures of it lying on gravel? How about one dangling from a finger in the gills?.......

I wish it was just environmental groups, but its not, Its the heavy hand of the federal government enforcing the Endangered Fish Recovery Act.

I wish they could focus their "job security" on enhancement and education.

It's the bane of the west.

Then how about some better trout management in the area? We do not even get that.

Laziest group of half wits who focus primarily on destruction without enhancement. Yeah, I am back now and have to deal with these rats again.

I bet they have a new fully loaded shock-kill fleet headed out daily right now. Savages!

They did late last fall on Blue Mesa. Fished in my pontoon around Elk Creek Marina and saw them put in the shock fleet. So far this year, even with most of the lake ice free I haven't seem them yet. Wishful thinking that perhaps their shock fest is over. At least one can wish. Blue Mesa hasn't been the same for several years now. I really believe they have done more damage than the good they intended.
