Anyone have any reports on fishing at Vallecito Lake? Northern's, bows, browns? Are there other fish here? Taking my 12 year old son there next week and we'd love to get into a snake or two but also want to catch some trout. Any guidance on tackle/lures/bait would be much appreciated.

I fished Vallecito from my kayak on the 24th. Nothing on my down rigger. Nothing on cranks or stick baits Caught three Trout and had many hits from little stockers. I'd pack a easy to cast light spinning rig and toss spoons. They will hit on the drop.
Largest 17" caught popping a tube jig. I was looking for Walleye without any luck. Talked to a couple of boaters who landed one Walleye on a bottom bouncer worm. Water level is nice and high. I had a nice time.
If you have a little time and check out Night Horse outside of Durango. Lots of small Trout and some kokanee to jig up. Read up on the rules before you go. College students and paddle boards.

That's great earplug. Thank you for the advice. We'll see how it goes. We were planning spoons, spinners and some jigs, so you have helped us confirm we are on the right track!!!
