I was talking about the trees and brush. It would be great to leave it but they'll doze it down all smooth-like to remove any potential hazards.we can make it work... bucket biology baby BBB
On a serious note though, it's going to be a long walk to my favorite spot to fish Hopefully the ice holds up this season unlike the last.
Biggest DOWNFALL to the "filling" of the reservoir is the fact that "they might have enough excess water to fill the lake level maybe 2 out of every 10 years"I always hated Chatty until I spent a bit of time there learning it...... Now days I don't mind the place and can typically manage to do some catching...
Typically not always lol
Since the lake is like 5 minutes from my house I prefer to save gas$$ and fish there most of the time. If $$ was no object I'd rarely fish there though LMAO
As far as the plan to raise the level... I am all for it! I know they aren't leaving structure but should still create a new lake syndrome situation..... I hope!!
Yeah I agree with that.... I think the 2 out of 10 years you are saying is prob. going to be about right but you never know.... Maybe we will get lucky!!Biggest DOWNFALL to the "filling" of the reservoir is the fact that "they might have enough excess water to fill the lake level maybe 2 out of every 10 years"
Those are BIG ODDS to face as they destroy what was once a beautiful area...
How long have you been out of state? The CPW are slowly but surely destroying many of the fine fisheries you mention. In particular, Blue Mesa has been pretty much destroyed for Kokes, Lakers, and is beginning to be overrun with perch. No where near the fishery it was just four or five years ago. The death boats have taken their toll.I don't live around there anymore, but from my 7 year experience in the state I was very impressed with the CPW and their management of the fisheries (and wildlife). From Quincy to Blue Mesa and everywhere in between, Colorado offered amazing opportunities for trophy fish of several species.
