To date I've avoided eating/catching much of anything that runs through Denver. All of the oil, fertilizer and other nasties go right into the water which is less of a filter and more of a collector. I try to catch waterways before they hit a major metro area. Mostly we catch the
Lil rainbows in small mountain lakes or Wyoming and they are absolutely delicious. Have a pair of Browns from granby going in the smoker today. Did get one delicious walleye from chatfield.
I've not had much success finding a good river place for spin casting, also haven't put much effort into looking.
Thanks for all the info so far! Love to hear others opinions on eat or don't eat spawning Kokanee.
