Lightbulb My 2014 goals

Last night, after my ice outing with my son, I started thinking about what I wanted to accomplish this year, in regards to fishing. Not a list of species with specific sizes or even specific lakes, per se... I really reflected on why I love this state and this sport so much, what I can do as a person and as an angler to help my beloved sport in my beloved home state. I have listed these in order of priority, and will try to update this thread as as I mark off an item from the list.


1) Develop and help implement improvements to Vanderbilt Pond here in South Denver

2) Attend at least 3 CPW meetings to offer my opinion and assistance on fishery-related matters

3) Attend at least 3 DPR meetings to offer my opinion and assistance on fishery-related matters

4) Volunteer at least two days a month with DPR on lake cleanups and improvement projects

5) Learn the fisheries within a 50 mile radius of my home in order to better understand the challenges facing them.


I hope to accomplish these goals and stay focused in 2014... I want my son and daughter to inherit great fisheries, and if I can help in some small way, I will make every effort.

Tight lines, all.

Hope you get a job, and can still do some of those things!

Looks like some reasonable goals to get done in a year. There are A lot of fisheries in a 50 mile radius of the metro area. I suggest pick 2 of your favorites and focus on them. Getting to know a fishery takes a lot of time. What works for me concerning Dillon and Green Mountain is to plot out were I fished each outing on the topographical maps. I number them and those numbers correspond with my journal and report about the outing that has all the info I gained. Its fun and helps me decide were I want to fish on the next outing, and helps me see the common aspects of the successful days.

Thanks guys.

On fisheries, I have one small set of ponds as one of my primary foci... I'll start there, learn each of the ponds in the set, and probably move to a funny little lake, hidden in plain sight, that holds gold...



As for work, I'm pretty close to having that locked down.
