Crappie are all over the place up here, and the quality of the fishery in each places varies quite a bit from year to year, so it's hard to guess where the best crappie fishing will be. The ponds around Fort Collins and Lovelend, and Boyd Lake are all decent places for crappie.

Seems like Boyd is not to bad. Was that lake drained during the drought in 2001 And how much pressure are they under there?

Hey fish hunter
Where did you catch your crappies at the Pueblo Res. It seems like the crappie fishing has went down over the past couple years.

I've seen anglers at Boyd come back to their cars with mud flap size crappies but for some reason I have never caught one of them myself. Nobody cared to mention exactly where in the lake they caught them. Wonder why.

Its not always easy to tell you were the Crappies are going to be in a lake the size of Pueblo. They often spon in the same place every year thats why you have so meany Crappie experts in the spring time. By summer time the experts are few and far between. The best way to find them in Pueblo is to troll and look for those suspening schools. If the school dose not suprise you and turn out to be wipers you will most likely have found the crappies. They are usally in about 12 to 18 feet of water. In the spring, Think marinas and shallow water.

Good luck

Why does everybody say that pueblo crappie fishing has went down. I'm pretty impressed with the size and amount of crappie I catch there. How ever I only fish for the in the fall. Any time you can catch them on suspending super rouges and big husky jerks that impressive. especially when the are 16 to 17 inckes long.
