I have been surfin around this sight for a little bit now and nobody has mentioned Dillon res and trout . Why? Is it not productive. Thinkin on tryin sat if any one has any tips for the lake let me know.
Last year I caught a really nice Arctic char near the snake river inlet on a kastmaster. He was 19 inches and 3 and a half pounds almost a state record. I knew it was close to the state record when I caught it so I decided to keep him but to my dissapointment he fell shy of that mark. I had him mounted though. They really are beautiful fish. I' ll see if I can post a pic of it.
Arctic char where stocked in dillon to help with the over abundance of fresh water shrimp. But they really never took off. I think this is the only lake in colorado where you can find them. If you look close you can tell they are colored differently than a brook and they have a longer body.
That is a sweet fish! how deep was it? I always assumed that the Char hung out towards the dam in deep water. I caught a small one about 10" in the river about three years ago....I thought it was just an odd colored brook until another angler that was fishing close to me told me what it was. Have you fished Dillon lately?
Fish w/ you no way! Just kiddin check your email, I am going to find that map I know I have it somewhere. Looks like the inlets are the hot tip. Any other info on this lake would be great I dont think we have ever ice fished Dillon.
I caught that char on an orange and gold kastmaster in about 15 fow at the snake inlet. I was fishing for kokes so may be he was ther eating their eggs? I have not been back since then but would like to give it another try let me know how you guys do.
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...
