Brand-spankin-new to these forums. I actually live in Pennsylvania, but my girlfriend just recently flew out to Colorado a few weeks ago to begin her 11 month stint as a team leader for Americorps. Before she left, I started getting her into fishing some trout streams and small ponds around here in PA, and she really seemed to enjoy it. Before she left, I bought her a little telescopic fishing pole paired with a nice reel, and sent that along with her in hopes that she can get out to fish and decompress on weekends when she's at the Americorps home base in Aurora.
She doesn't have a car out there, so she can pretty much only travel via bicycle. I think she'd definitely consider taking an Uber or something though if she had to. She's already ventured to two of the reservoirs within biking distance (one was Quincy I believe), but so far she's only caught like 3 small panfish. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for her, especially if it's a small stream/creek/river for her to check out! I know hot spots are pretty sacred when it comes to fishing, and I'm certainly not expecting anyone to give up their honey holes or anything like that. She'll literally only be fishing a few weekends here and there, and all she's really been using is a small pink rubber trout worm because that's what she enjoyed using back home in the trout streams, haha.
ANY recommendations/advice/guidance at all is greatly appreciated. If you'd rather not post publicly, just let me know and I'll check out my PMs.
More than anything, I really just wanna keep her excited about fishing. She's the kind of girl that can go, not catch a thing, and still have a blast. I just wanna see if we can get her hooked up with some fish in the process.
Thanks a bunch!!!
