Default Spinney 6-12

Well. Finally went to see what's going on there. Found out that at least in the half mile long stretch that me and my brother walked it's way too shallow along the shore with no drop offs. Next time float tube. As we got there we saw this guy catching a pike. My son wanted to run over and see so we did. The guy asked if we wanted it. Said he wasn't putting it back in the lake because it eats his baby trout. Just shook my head and walked away.

Anyhow I Figured out my step in figuring out that place. Won't even try from the shore next time

But they do eat baby trout....and baby pike, and baby bass and baby ducks... And that guy was a moron, because he doesn't realize why those BIG trout in the Mile are so big.

On the sign at Spinney I think the way they phrase it is something like 'encouraged to harvest/kill pike especially those under 24" ' I don't understand the attitude toward pike in Colorado (I do understand from what is stated by CPW and attitude of trout only fishermen just don't agree). Pike is a great fighting and great eating fish; we loved them in Michigan...

I got in an argument with a few sissy stickers about this. They were dead set on it being true. They were surprised when I showed them the page and regs for Spinney. In the end they said it was the ANS guys telling them this......which is about the biggest pile of steaming crap I have heard.Damn idiot ANS guys. For guys who have a hard time doing simple inspections they sure do know a lot .

Again, I do not agree with the agenda but this is what is on the CPW page for Spinney http://cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/pa...s/Fishing.aspx



Pike Management at Spinney Reservoir

In order to successfully manage both the trout and pike populations in stable numbers, CPW has instituted several innovative management techniques for Spinney Reservoir. These include removing all size and bag limits on pike; stocking trout only in the late fall or early winter when pike metabolisms have slowed down (they are less hungry); stocking trout that are at least 12" long; and encouraging fishermen to harvest all pike caught, regardless of size.
This final measure is important to reduce the number of smaller pike present in the reservoir, allowing for a larger number of healthy, trophy- sized pike to be recruited
