I am from fruita, which is right next to grandjunction. Read the email I sent you colorado fats!!! I shared some bass places and some trout places!
For trout, nothing beats a nightcrawler bounced on the bottom, especially in the colorado river around glenwood springs. Ya just have to fish it when it is clear, it is now but won't be in a week. Curly tail grubs also work great too. The best holes are southcanyon near the bridge, canyon creek upper for size, and where the roaring fork river goes in if the colorado is blown out. I'm always happy to help out with whatever fishing you may want in our area!!!
Perch for pike is legal here, but they must be dead. We did it at crawford this year and it worked well icefishing. Rifle gap is a shadow of a fishery of what it used to be, mostly because of the drought and overstocking of rainbow trout which have destroyed the food chain as we used to know it. There are better, more obscure lakes out there. a good example, about 40 min from grand junction is juniata, which has big largemouth, good smallmouth, a bunch of walleye and nice ones, and big rainbow trout. It is a tough lake to learn though, but I will be happy to share my knowledge with you.
