Hey Elvis, happy Thanksgiving to you too buddy!  St. Vrain is a great place to catch trout on short notice, year round.  I'm guessing that you were catching rainbows, right?  I am definately not a fish biologist but, I'm pretty sure that the 'bows spawn in sping.  These deformations may be from the hatcheries the fish came from.  These fish are very condensed in the pools in which they are raised and have a lot of competition at feeding time.  The trout will rush the food pellets swimming in short bursts while pounding into the walls and each other causing their mouths to become "tweakwed".  At least that is my theory, please help me and Elvis to uncover the truth.  ;D

As far as I know bass spawn in the spring, but I could be wrong.

bass do spawn in the spring, rainbows spawn in the spring.

BUT, I have caught fall run rainbow trout on the colorado river, meaning ones that have and dump mature eggs or sperm when I catch them in the fall. I also catch spring run browns. Those two are uncommon but I usually catch 1 or 2 of each in each respective season. Not this fall though. However, I do not think that the bows would be spawning in st. vrain ponds, correct me if I'm wrong. Rainbows really cannot spawn in lakes well, they need moving current. also, these lip deformations may be from, as that one guy said, from the hatchery, or it could be from anglers catching the fish (that can deform lips and jaws sometimes too.).

Hope this helps clear some things up!

i catch trout out of the delaneys in the winter and the females are usually just spewing eggs, have caught many this way. they are usually cuttbows, don't know if this makes a difference.
