I fished brush hollow today. Got there bright and early I was the third boat on the lake. In the first 4 cast I caught 3 fish no size though. I did hook one fish that seemed a little bigger then the rest i caught but it wraped me around some weeds and got off. All in all it was a good day I lost count on how many bass I caught (Some where around 25 fishing from 5:30-11:30) most were very small. Biggest was maybe 11 inches. IMO there is way to many brim in there for the bass to successfully spawn. I did see a couple of nice bass maybe 13-14 inches but they didn't want what I was throwing. Which by the way was a 4 inch senko in dark pumpkinseed with a flouresant tip. I was way up in the bushes as far as I could go sometimes.

I was there on 6-5 and loaded up on the "bream", they sure where tasty too. When I was tired of putting them in the basket I put on a plastic craw and fist cast out pulled in a 15" largemouth.
I thought that I was onto something good, but that was the only one I hooked into.

I decided Brush Hollow will be my cutbait lake, when I need gills for cutbait it will be my first stop.

Then the lake needs some pike and big bass need to be released.
Pike would do the trick and I love to fish for them but they could take over that lake I think a safer choice would be Muskie. Not tiger muskie but real muskie. Wouldn't that be cool. They don't reproduce quiet as well and they getter bigger. Can they put some ten pound bass in the lake is that possible that would be cool too.

The limon school raises tiger muskies and donates them to the DOW so maybe they will add some tigers in there some day. No lakes in Colorado that I know of have muskie, so I doubt that will be an option. As far as the bass go putting 10lbers in a lake that gets drawn down really low for irragation would only starve them to death. Plus it would cost to much to grow them that big, especially in a state not set up for bass.
