Default Tiger Muskie

Hey all,
Fished for Muskie on the fly in WI(grew up there), and really got hooked.

Searching this forum doesn't yield to much in the way of Muskie fishing people.

Has anyone else here been bitten by Muskie fever? Make yourself known!

Welcome to Colorado and the site. There are Tiger Muskie but not pure Muskie here (as far as I know). Most are pretty tight lipped as they are sterile hybrids and Colorado Parks and Wildlife do not stock many these days due to cost. PM me and I can point you to one water that you may want to try.

jkaboom, I think you raise an important point. One example is an average 40" Muskie(legal limit on water i fished) in WI is 10 years old. I can't imagine Tigers are very different. Because of this I'm catch and release only when it comes to Muskie.

Caught one in local denver on corn one evening. Dont really target them. Rather go for spring bass.

Grumpie, I will keep that in mind for my Muskie fly box! That's the way though, I have heard many stories of kids catching muskies on worm and bobber.

I would say that overall Tiger Muskie fishing in Colorado is pretty much a waste of time. You might have a shot at Gross, Pinewood, DeWesse or Big Creek. There are some others but your better off getting your fix back in WI, MN, or Canada..

Good luck!!

Numbers are low and all the ones I have had on my line I got fishing for other
species. Put up a great fight-much stronger than pike IMO. Wish they would stock more.

What kind of set up do you use when you target them? I am looking to get an 8wt for a dedicated streamer rod as well bass, carp, bonefish, pike.

Any tips on pike flies from a WI guy would be appreciated- something tells me you have had more opportunity to target them than I have.
