So I got out of school early today, went home, was bored, went to Chatfield. I haven't gotten around to fishing the spillway this year, so I fished it, even though it's barely flowing. I caught one tiny bass just off the rocks. Nothing else was happening, so I hit the dog ponds. One other guy was fishing and caught a few small crappie (on minnows I think), but the fishing was slow. I was lazy, so I did the classic worm and bobber method. I caught one sunfish and the smallest bass I have ever caught. I think this may beat some of the other ones. It was fun, but the fishing sucks at the dog ponds and spillway right now.

When you guys say the spillway do you mean the outlet where the river starts or the water that is just west of there? I went to the water that looks like a big square where the water would flow if there was a massive flood filling chatfeild completely. It looked about 2 feet deepall the way is why I ask. Does it get deeper the farther out you cast, i was there at night and could not tell.

You know Mustang I used to think you were a nice kid.  Had your head screwed on straight and had a future.  Now the truth comes out..............
