You're right about harvey. It is not worth it to fish for pike there though because of the no bag limit bs and the drought hurt that fishery as well. There used to be bunches of big largemouths in there too, as well as brown trout. Both of those fisheries have come and gone though. The tiger muskies were the only ones ever stocked on the west slope to my knowledge but they stopped in either 2000 or 2001, and they never stocked many. There are also good bluegill and yellow perch in there as well. Every year I like to icefish harvey at least once and get a nice mixed bag of panfish; we've had a couple days there where we walked with a limit of yellow perch, crappie, and nice bluegill around 8". Fed us for a good amount of the winter. It is good to nightfish along the dam and during the day the west side of the lake can be pretty good if you get into a school of them.rip lip said:I don't fish for Slab Crappie (I love saying that), but do know that Harvey Gap reservoir near rifle is stacked with them. If you have never been it is a small reservoir that fills in the spring and is drawn down way low by fall (below half pool). When I go pike fishin there in the fall I see people catchin stringers of crappie. Just a suggestion if you are headin West. Harvey is restricted to 15 horse motors or less, no pleasure boaters, simply great fishing if you hit it right. There are also Smallies, trout, catfish, and I've heard of Tiger Muskies in there.
Been busy lately. Taking care of business, I guess. I'm going through the transition from my spring/summer outdoor activities to my fall/winter so I've been doing a lot of research for my fall season. Thanks for asking.Jay_In_Parker said:We used to hammer them @ CC too. And have only got one this year and that was early in the year.
Good to see you 1eyered! Where you been?
