Also planning on the swim beach - looking at arriving around 6:15 - 6:30.
Fistfullafish -- 9news has the following forecast:
"Most of the snow end by midnight but light snow is possible even after the midnight hour. Any additional accumulation tonight will be minor. Overnight low temperatures in the metro area will be in the upper teens."
Is the area off the beach any good for walleye? Mostly caught trout at Chatfield...
Plan on bringing my topo/structure map of the lake. Would like to identify where the old roadbed is.
Sorry for the delay in my report... Super Bowl kept me busy Sunday afternoon and evening.
Got out to Chatfield at 6:45 am and fish about 100' directly off of the swim beach buildings in 14 fow. Fished pink/white tube bait and an assortment of jigs that worked before. All bites and fish were on the tube bait with meal worms. Caught 6 and missed at least that many strikes... Kept three for supper. It seemed like the trout were moving in and out of that spot every 30 minutes or so.
I'm going to whip up some flies for ice fishing. I want to start by sort of mimicking the current lures/jigs on the market that people tend to have success with here in Colorado. I have a few ideas in mind, but want to hear from you guys. (Calling Dr Cro, P.S. I enjoy your videos)...
I will be in Leadville in a couple weeks and I have never iced Twins or Turquoise.
Which lake would you suggest for someone with out access to a snowmobile? I have all other equipment needed, just wondering what will I be faced with? I'm not targeting the monsters. I just want to learn about...
