Default Colorado Fishing.....

So, my girl and I went up to fall river reservoir this weekend..... I figured hey let's go to the mountains get away from people... Ha I guess in Colorado that doesn't exist anymore. Everyone is over fishing and over crowding this place. We have been to numerous hard to get to places only to find out..... It's full of people.... One guy at a pulled out 9 fish and just pulled them to the bank and let them die.... I guess that's the problem as to why there aren't fish anymore like there used to be. Guess I'll just keep trying until I can move to a less populated area.... If I drive 3 hours and hike 2 miles back in and still wind up around 37 other people around a small mountain lake... It's too crowded.

Luckly no one knows my rock pile besides one other forum dude. Was up high in southpark weekend prior and the parking lot was MAXED out. Counted over 40 fisherman and had to walk atleast 1/4 mile till there wasnt a bait dunker. Half of these idiots are fishing for trout all over the state with powerbait. Which im good with. The fishing has gone downhill cause there are SO many people fishing and SO much pressure on them at every lake. For example like 5 years ago we used to float tube lowell ponds and have 30 bass days. Sense then ive seen almost every mujado in there keeping fish. Even saw one with like 15 bass on the stringer and like 10 gills, they bring 5 kids so they can just line the banks with rods... Nobody really gives a fk about the fish and or the trash they leave behind. I cant stand MFs these days.

There are no secret spots anymore and the state doesn't have alot of water.

But there is still good fishing to be had, just have to put in the time. And this is a popular time to go fishing. especially
for weekend warrior types-later this summer and fall the numbers will dwindle.

Sucks about people doing illegal and unethical things with fish. Complaining about too many people going to the same place you went seems silly and immature. Fall river res is super close to town too so that's what happens.

I wanna feel your pain but the only thing I'm gonna add is i saw 2 dreadlocked hippies engaging in coitus in the poodle position in a parked Volkswagen bus, when I hiked up there years back.

Maybe try some of the harder to access nearby lakes?
