The first time I went to Boyd was about 4 years ago,now that was low!This year was the first time back and I didn't even reconize the lake.4 years ago it was two seprate lakes with a shallow chanel between them.
The water level at lake loveland is the lowest I have seen in the five years .
Come to find out they(city of loveland) sold some water downstream somewhere. Until they fill Loveland, Boyd will stay, however boyd is not to bad...the EYES dont mind!! ;D
Been catching mine trolling around the south end of Boyd holding the boat over about the 12 ft. contour. Try a Reef Runner lure, the "Ripstick" model trolls to a max depth of 11 ft which is about right for this kind of fishing. Some really nice trout will hit that, too.
The same lure has been catching eyes off the north dam at horsetooth over at the east end of the dam, according to the fishing salespeople at JAX, take that for whatever it might be worth.
Its a classic warmwater walleye bite right now. 15-23 FOW with worm harnesses/bottom bouncers at .8 to 1.1 mph according to GPS. Early morning being the best time, however I have not fished late day at all. I have caught some keepers but alot of the fish average 14.75 inches!!! Good fishn
