Re: ARVADA RESERVOIR

Id try a drop-shot worked very slow or trying throwing a tube. Cast it out and let it sit for 30 sec. than pop-it and let it sit again.

Re: ARVADA RESERVOIR

I have been a shore fisherman my whole life so the deep water jigging is new to me as is trolling have landed a couple of trout trolling nothing else hopefully will get a muskie or big walleye out of there sometime the water temp was about 57 deg on sunday so hopefully the warm water species will become a little more active.
