1st time on Glendo and what a treat. This lake is great!
Fished on Friday. Got on the lake at about 12:00 noon, and fished till about 5:30 p.m.
Spent most of our time getting to know the lake a little, crusing and checking out numerous spots, points, bays, etc. Weather was rainy, a little snow, wind, etc. pretty much the whole time we were there.
Lake appears to be almost to full pool. (I checked elevations before we left, looked within 10 feet or so of full)
Water temps ranged from 45 degrees at Whiskey Bay, were we launched, to 48.6 degrees at the NW mouth of Muddy Bay, leading into Red Canyon. Water is pretty stained from about north of Reno Cove, and more muddy from Goose Island up into Elkhorn.
We fished around Goose Island for a short time, with no bites. Marked plenty of fish in that area, and water temp there was 47.5 degrees. We continued up towards Red Canyon were we found our warmest temps, and fish, and decided to fish this area only, hard, untill we connected with a few bites.
First Fish I caught was a 25.5" male Eye. We used 1/8 oz. custom jigs with 3" Power Grubs in green / orange color. Fished in about 9' to 17 fow and started getting some more bites, and had a few on, and lost. 2nd fish was a 24" male on the same bait. My partner had a few bites, and lost another fish. Good action for about 2 hours, and things slowed down, so we headed back to the dock.
4 other friends of mine got on the lake at about 2:00 p.m. and fished in Whiskey Bay, but found no love there. The plan for the next morning was to go back to Muddy / Red Canyon area. were we had fish, hit it hard and tear them. Right!...............Wrong!
Fished all day Saturday, I had about 3 bites, no fish, my buddy Paul had about a 2 lber. up to the boat, and lost it. 2 other friends of mine came in Saturday morning, for a total of 8 of us and 4 boats, never caught a fish all day. Weather continued to be cold and rainy.
This is a very cool lake, and I can't wait to get back up here, maybe in about 3 weeks. Should be very good by then.
We stopped in at Curlys to get bait and license. They seemed to be nice people, but really had not much of a clue as to what was happening at the lake.
The Trading Post had no minnows when we tried them on Saturday morning, so we went back into Curlys, and paid $4.50 a doz. for almost Crappie size bait! I was pretty dissapointed with the bait quality, and the price. OUCH!!
This group of people I fish with a lot, and we always have a great time!
Thanks everyone who chimmed in on my previous Glendo post with info last week before I left.
Hope the pics work
