Do pike feed much at night in 11 Mile??

Years ago I used to fish Sanchez Reservoir a lot, and frequently all night. Despite the fact that it had a huge pike population back then, I only caught 1 pike at night.

You can fish Pueblo at night. I've heard from a few people fishing 11mile at night in the summer time for trout too.

No clue on the pike bite after the sun goes down though.

And Chattie, people fish that after dark all the time.

You can fish 24/7 at 11 mile or Pueblo either open water or on the ice.
I have night fished thru the ice at the mile before and froze my butt off, I had a shelter and heater! Just wait till morning!

3. ICE FISHING:Some waters may be restricted by local laws. Unless otherwise stated, waters

(a) Ice fishing holes cannot exceed 10 inches in diameter or 10 inches on any side.
(b)Fires on ice must be enclosed.
(c) No littering allowed on ice.
(d) Portable ice shelters (where permitted) must be removed at end of day.
(e)Permanent shelters (where permitted) must display owner or user name, address and telephone
number legibly in contrasting colors on outside and on shore side of shelter. Letters must be min.

The only pike I have ever caught or seen caught at night were around dock lights. I have fished places with eyes, smb, and pike so after the dark came kept fishing and never caught a northern, doesn't mean it can't happen though!

Uncle Milty (when he owned his store) told me a story about a guy that got harassed by the rangers at Elevenmile at night. Apparently he got there about 3am, cast out a couple rods, sat in his chair and fell asleep.

Here comes the ranger about 5am....kicks the chair and tells the guy he is "camping" illegally and not actively fishing. Ranger tells him to get a campsite and let's him go with a warning.

If you fish there at night, don't fall asleep. :-\

ya guess it would be an unattended rod ??? but the camping is crazy sounds like if I went to the dream stream or 11 mile/spinney and I wanted to take a break then I would have to buy a camping permit and I'm not aloud to napp in my truck for minute. crazy and if they let me do it wouldn't they have to let him do it?
he had a day pass right? let the guy nap!

tell him maybe he has to real in the lines if he naps but still tfu O0

Did you go back after that Ed? ;D ;D ;D ;D :D

Denise crashed out in the 4runner yesterday at the mile for a few hours - if the rangers would have harassed her I'd have gotten pretty ticked off at that.

Ice fished till midnight 3 or 4 times at 11-mile over the years. Rarely caught crap- and it was FREEEEKIN COLD! And I'm fairly immune to cold- ;D Gotta keep the heater blasting when its -30 outside.
