What different place are you going to fish this year? I'm meaning a place you've always wanted to try, but you never have. I've always wanted to hit williams fork, but I haven't for some reason. I will try to make it up there this year though.
1. The Taylor-Big Trout
2. Gunnison-Salmon Flies
3. Yampa-I hear good things
4. White river-I fell in love reading about it
5. San Juan- Duh Big trout
6. The Green- Pretty river also big trout
7. Many more
1. Pueblo-I have wiper fever
2. Valliceto- Stalking pike in the spring
4. Spinney-Big Trout
5. One of those in the wind rivers that have ****** trout! (names have been changed to protect the innocent)
I also hope to catch my first pike, lm or sm bass, catfish, grayling, and brookie this year. Most of them are just from lack of trying (except for the pike) ;D
I want to hit Pueblo for wiper because I have never been and have never caught a wiper....Pinewood for tigers for the same reason and Aurora from a boat because I just purchased a used trolling motor big enough to push my boat. I am going to try and do more fishing close to home instead of dropping 60 bucks on fuel every weekend going to the mile just to get a few bites. I tried night fishing once last year at Chatfield and want to do that more this summer also.
My buddy and I are making a checklist of places we either haven't been, or we have only been once or twice. He ships out to Pendleton in July, so we are making the best of his time, which means fishing.
Williams Fork Res.
Lakes up on Grand Mesa
Jerry Creek Res.
Strontia Springs Res.
Lathrop State Park lakes
Forbay (several times ;D)
That's not even half of the list, because we haven't made it yet, haha.
One thing I noticed last year is I had all these waters I wanted to fish and felt let down that I didnt make it to them all... This year I only picking 3 or 4 that way I can get to them all and feel good about it, and hopefully hit a few more if I can.
