No it was not a complete winter kill. But fishing has been pretty tought there this year, so I'm told.Don In Denver said:Did all the perch, pikeand walleye in Sanchez die off??? I guess what I'm asking is whether it was a complete winter killl. Thanks.
If sanchez is west of the continental divide (which I think it is), no. There will no longer be pike, walleye, perch, crappie, catfish, etc, in there because they cannot stock gamefish west of the continental divide. Unless mr. bucket biologist pays a visit???lucky7 said:Are they gonna keep Pike in the lake?
TFB:TroutFishingBear said:good! They may keep it a warmwater fishery then!
I always wanted to fish it. never got around to it and now I'm wondering what I missed :'(
Yeah, and the rattlesnakes! I really enjoyed that place, too.bobco said:I really love that place and you have to be a little wierd to love that nasty lava rock, windy, high desert place in the middle of no where!!!
Nice fish Don...I think i amy have to find one good Pike fishery to catch a nice PikeDon In Denver said:Back in that time frame the lake was full of big perch- legitimate 10-12" fish and lots of 2-8 lb. walleyes. It was a heck of a fishery in those days.
