I really wish a pic was available, but understand not carrying around a camera all the time. When I was a teenager in Illinois, I recall Dad and I out one spring when we ran into a bunch of Spawning bluegills (not the larger mouthed sunfish/punkinseed), which had a strong red to them. One of the most beautiful fish in the world! Would not suspect this in the fall tho.

I don't think Colorado has a lot of focus for those delicious boney critters, the way the east does, and we sort of lump this group of small centrarchids together. We have a much larger, and different group of choices here... which is wonderful.

But, back to the point, if it was a true bluegill, and in spawning color for some seasonal reason which was different this year, you were fortunate to see it.
