With the CWA tourney coming up next weekend, I'd bet responses are going to brief, limited or nonexistant. I have heard that the water is dropping about 8 inches per day and that is making the fish (walleye - of course) move alot. Therefore they are harder to find. A friend spent some time there over the 4th and limited each day but the fish were nothing that would win a tournament, just eating size fish. I'll be up there this Sat and Sun and again the end of next week and weekend. I'll PM you next week.
We went up last Thursday and it was very slow. One 18" wallie and two smaller ones we through back. The lake looks great, water is about 69 degrees, and there are fish on the radar. I think drifting days are past us. Try trolling in 20-30' of water with rapalas/fat raps/shad raps. It's a great lake. Good luck.
JohnnyO, fished Glendo on the 27th and 28th. Fishing was slow with nothing over 19in. Best luck was after dusk, trolling clown colored rattletraps at about 2 mph. Long lining on the Northwest end of the lake by whiskey gulch. Didn't see a bunch being caught either. We tried jigging (no luck), bottom bouncing (again no luck) and even dunked a crawler (no luck). We have an older deep-V aluminum witha wimpy 60hp outboard that kept us close to camp so we didn't get to try much of the lake. We kept 3 fish for grubbing, let about a dozen go. All in all, a decent trip to get away from the city lights.
Not going to affect a lot of fishing areas, Clear Creek Reservoir is the only one I can think of. Camping should be better.
New member here. I started fishing when I moved out to CO just over 4 years ago. I've done a lot of stream and river fishing (both spinning and fly-casting), probably because that is what CO is best known for? But recently I decided I wanted to become a more competent lake fisherman, and catch...
Anyone have any reports on fishing at Vallecito Lake? Northern's, bows, browns? Are there other fish here? Taking my 12 year old son there next week and we'd love to get into a snake or two but also want to catch some trout. Any guidance on tackle/lures/bait would be much appreciated.
