Well, I've lived in Colorado a long time now, and have heard about the mighty Snake river for Kokes, every Thanksgiving. So figured what the heck & decided to check it out. Glad I did, as it was a ton of fun. Got there about 7am, fished in 6 ft. of water, pretty close to the shore. There were only 4 other groups out there, so pretty much had the place to ourselves.(maybe the blizzard starting at Georgetown, through the tunnel had something to do with that) Caught at least 40 of those little suckers, with maybe 5 or 6 small rainbows mixed in. Easily missed or lost just as many. Tiny pink jigs & a small piece of shrimp crushed it, although I did use waxies a little too. flasher was marking fish the entire time I was there. Was getting lazy towards the end, didn't even reel, just lifted them out ;) Don't know how long it usually lasts, but as others have said, if you have kids or newbies that you need to get on fish, it's an easy place to go to!








Enjoy, Johnny-O

it is a great place for kids or newbies but you do have to be careful there, lots of holes to step in as the season goes on you were lucky to be able to fish it during the week first time I went there on a weekend I got there early and had it to myself until sunrise when it looked like the marines storming the beach and normandy soon I was surrounded by hundreds of my closest friends and unless you have a smoker I found out they were like eating mush but good job Johny im headed to Georgetown saturday should be more of the same

Great job Johnny! Good smokers! I like to smoke em for about 30 and then can them up in mason jars in the pressure cooker. Damn fine beer food, break out a jar of Salmon and some crackers!
