Default junction and parts between denver and junction

I have to go to GJ for work somewhere in the last two weeks of June. I'll have either one or 1/2 day to fish depending on how the schedule shakes out. I'm not really into the frying pan tourist scene. where's worth half a day between junction and denver that I outta stop and fish? preferably for a shot at something other than just trout. gotta be from shore.

Jerry Creek would be a good place to start. About 1/2 hour out of GJ on your way east. Good shot at good size blue gills and bass. Haven't fished it in a couple of years but I keep hearing good reports on folks catching some good size fish. It is a catch and release only fishery controlled by the water folks in GJ. Shore fishing only.

Is there anything swimming in the slow moving waters outside glen wood along 70 or is it all dead from cpw eradication efforts?

My guess is that Harvey won't be drained until fall, as they will use the water for irrigation all summer. Good fish in both. Try topwater for smallies.

I know you mentioned warm water fish. Not too sure why? Plenty of warm water fishing along the front range. And that "slow stretch of water above, through, and beyond Glenwood?" It's great fishing for Bows and Browns. Not your typical stockers. A handful of rapalas and the many pullouts along the way is all that's needed.

Yeh, what he said; I used to make a western slope trip once a month on business. The return to Denver on Friday was fishing time. There is water on the Fork right in Glenwood that holds plenty of fish and the Pan is still one of my favs. And like the man said, there are nice pull outs in the canyon, near Gipson and on the Eagle. I always take both spinning and fly rigs on that trip.
