I love targeting those huge bass cruising the shallows of Granby. If there not biting I head over to Chambers because there’s a healthy population of walleye and want to land me a beast eye. I bet you didn’t know those high mountain lakes Colorado is known for can produce hog sized wiper either. Our cold mountain reservoirs and/or lakes cater especially well to warm water species. I always thought the almighty trout was this state’s premier fish because we have the regional topography to support populations of this fish and was surprised to see how fast warmwater species evolved. Could it be the DOW is secretly engineering these warmwater species to live anywhere? Are they trying to alleviate the pressure put on them by our local wiper mafia? Not likely but it seems those front range anglers were right in that our state should focus less on trout. Alabama has the geographical infrastructure trout need to thrive right? Trout get a bad rap for being top priority. We do have a unique landscape that gives all anglers a shot at an array of species but think the trout is Colorado. I too would like to see wiper, bass, and walleye thrive and agree there needs to be more done. We have the infrastructure but need a few bodies of water managed like a gold metal fishery. Point here being I don’t fish halibut when I’m chasing bonefish down in the keys. When in Rome fellas….. we got to embrace the slimer!
