Default Dillon Res.

Does anyone on the forum have any insight into fishing on Dillon. I am always amazed at the lack of boats ( fishing) and fishermen on the lake. Is it not worthwhile to fish Dillon Res. ?

I have caught long and skinny browns wading in the inlets at about three in the morning throwing large Rapalas.

Fismanlee, you work way too hard for skinny browns. Slayerfish, you seem to have the place pegged. A year ago i wrote Ed Dentry of the Rocky Mountain News, in regard to Dillon. He said the DOW no longer stocks Dillon because the forage base is shot due to the mysis shrimp that were put in there years ago. These apparently wiped out the plankton and caused the entire food chain to plummet. I was hoping someone might have evidence that this lake wasn't mostly dead.

Like any large body of water, there are prolly huge fish in there, there's just not very many. There are prolly some decent -sized fish in there also but just not many of those either. One year I went to Dillon and the 4 year old kokes I was catchin were 10" long. I KNEW then that place [email protected]!

I always catch lots of trout there. many 16-18 inches. I fish where there is water coming into the lake.

Fish the snake river inlet right after it has frozen (the main lake will still be open water). Some of you may change your opinions then.
