Not much of one really. If you are headed down there this weekend here is what i found yesterday. Water is 47-48 degree's most places. I did find some that was 52 degree's up shallow on the north side. There were some bass in there. I fished from the dam all the way down to Turkey Creek.

Walleye seem to be in a post spawn kind of funk? Caught a few shorts and had a bunch of light biters. Just couldn't find them bunched up in their regular haunts? The wind was from the NE and East all day and was a huge pain in the ass!!!! It should warm up quickly now that some stable weather is headed our way.

Was down yesterday and found the same. Was too windy to fish soft plastics so I threw a spinnerbait-got one smallie and a bunch of follows where they would veer off at the boat. He had that milky white coloring so they are just now moving up.

Lake is still about 2 wks away from good fishing (for bass anyway). Pueblo is always one of the last lakes to turn on. But every spring I keep trying to hurry up the calendar. :)

Fished hard all day yesterday and it was tough again. The wind is really getting old, lol. I ended up with two keeper eye's and my best PLO smallie ever snap jigging. Found some 53 degree water yesterday!

Its not the cred factor, just want to see a 30" eye.
I always suspected that there are more 30" class walleye in Pueblo than reported online. Not that it matters to me. Too far and too close at the same time... :biggrin1:

One would think so, being Plo is so big and deep and full of food.

That's what I'm thinking. The same conditions that grow giant wipers should also grow giant walleyes.
