I just wish some drunken retard would grab 30 live burbots out of the fontinelle spillway, and dump them in lake dillon. that would be the greatest overkill. it would be fishing anarchy.
Have you ever fished in any other state in the rocky mountain region besides colorado?The trout is Colorado my friend..... not that complicated your right. There's a reason Colorado is known for being a trout haven and find it quite entertaining when guys like you think I'm taking sides :thumb: This state is amazing because of it's diversity but the trout remains king!
I have. Co,Wy,Mt., Or, CA, ND, SD, NE, KS, TX, FL, AK, MN, WI, IN, OH, MI and MB plus ON in Canada.
People with trout want walleye or bass, people with bass want trout, we always want what we don't have.
I like trout, but then again I like bass, eyes, wipers...
Wow, this thread is a dead horse but here it is again.
The elevation of flathead lake is less than 3,000 big goonie, thats a BIG difference from conditions in Colorado. And now that I think of it, you never answered my question. Why don't the small mouth bass in the yampa make it past Craig? they are free to, but they don't. And, the elevations of those lakes in wyoming don't exceed the elevation of Denver. Those lakes in wyoming get about 10 percent the fishing pressure that our lakes such as Pueblo, Crack and Chatty.
Have you ever witness the netting and egg take operations at Chatty and Creek for walleye? its pretty dam impressive and those lakes are managed for walleye and bass. No fishing during the spawn, and all fish under 18, or 15 on bass must be released immediately. About the only thing more that could be done is to just make it straight catch and release.
You always mention elkhead. Its surrounded by farms and hayfields. It gets major amounts of supplementation(fertilizer and cow ****) and the winters there are less than what the metro area gets. You can compare Colorado to those places all you want, but you know the old addage, Apples and Oranges.
In terms of climate Colorado is a very diverse state with a climate like none other in the country and its awesome and we are lucky that we have the opportunities we do for warmwater species. The CPW has never done anything to Blue Gill, Wipers, Cats, Bass, and Walleye like they have done to Lake trout. You don't see any protective regulations on trout like you do the warmwater species.
You're wrong but it's ok. I'll agree to disagree... And go fish other places comparable to Colorado where they care about more than comorant food.Goonba, flathead ices off in early march. And some years doesnt even get ice at all! . We don't see ice off in grand and Summit untill first or second week of may. As far as the Casper area. We absolutely blow them away on average snow pack, the only thing they have worse or more extreme than us is the wind.
It's a totally different climate down in Haden than it is in Grand and Summit. Saying that those areas have a more extreme climate than Grand and Summit is one of the most incorrect things you have ever said.
Flathead lake is also a natural lake vs a reservior. Our Reservior raise and lower differently every year due to mans needs to store and use water and there is nothing natural about them.
We are impacted much more severly by run off, every thing is much more inconsistent and volitile from water temps, oxygen levels, plankton levels, water clarity and so on. Again apples and oranges goonie and anyone with a have a brain can see that. I write this as I look out my window at the fresh 6 inches of snow we got today in a matter of 4 hours.
Steamboat ski resort will be shut down by first week of april, we have lift accessable skiing in late may maybe even early june.
No. Because You can go look it up for yourself... I'm not gonna sit here for 45 mins looking up links to back up my statements, trout juggalo. Keep missing the point for daddy.Come on Goonie.
I want a link that says Flathead doesn't ice off untill late may and that says that it gets a cap of ice every year.
I want a link that says flathead is not a natural reservoir.
I want a link that says natural lakes are more natural than reseviors
I want a link that says Casper area gets more snow than Grand and Summit counties.
I want link that Steamboat stays open longer than then summit county areas.
I want a link that says Hayden Colorado has a more severe climate than Granby or Silverthorne.
I want a link that says i dont have 6 inches of fresh snow on my Deck.
Untill you can pony up Goonba, you need to quit spewing your BS.
