Does anyone have any information on Brush hollow? I went down there a few days ago just to scout it out. Fish around the damn with jerkbaits, curly tail grubs, swimbaits, and tried some suspended fishing from a slip bobber and never got a bite. It was the middle of the day so I wasn't expecting much but I plan to go back soon to catch some pre-spawn walleye, maybe do some night fishing around the damn with jerk baits. Anyone had any success at it or been out there lately to see what the bite is like? I'll let you know how I do, sure is a beautiful lake.

Haven't been in awhile. Be careful. I used to see at least one mountain lion everytime I was there at night or early morning

It is a nice lake and early in the year is the time to fish it before the drawdowns start.

There are walleye in there-lots of dinks but some big ones come out of there. And the rocks on the damface are treacherous-be careful.

Thanks, and will do. I'll have to use a head lamp to find my way around. I plan on going tomorrow night I'll report back how I do

It does get pretty damn windy at that damn dam but I'll be damned if I don't catch something off it eventually. I hope they had some luck!

Sadly it is abused- only thing that saves that lake from the masses is the dense weedgrowth that is along most of the shoreline come spring.

After trying the lake twice now I have to agree. I started out on the kayak but it got too windy to fish so I fished the rest of the day around the dam. Shores were crowded and their was one family teaching their kids to "skip rocks" ( letting them throw boulders In the water.) right next to all the fisherman. I must have cast a jerk bait a hundred times around the damn to no avail. I got one good hit on a night crawler but that was the only action I had. That's two trips with litteraly one bite to show and no fish. I think I'll stick to pueblo reservoir the fish aren't as pressured and it's better fishing habitat. More places to hide from people throwing 5 pound rocks in the water.

I have seen fish over the 20" mark come out of that lake using white curly tail grubs by the dam were the water comes out right at dusk. me personally have not caught one over 20 but a few around the 18"to 19" mark.
