Oh they already know about it. But I'm not going to give any specific regions. In some of this area they can't shock anyway.kpetro said:That is good news. We'd just better hope nobody from the DOW reads this forum. They might get some ideas...
That would be awesome to catch these gators on a fly rod. I know a lot of the guides from Steamboat do that and they love the pike more than they do the trout.Fishdawg said:Do you use the same baits for river pike as you would at say Stagecoach? Any on a fly-rod?
buzzbaits work better in the current. Cast downstream and the current rises it to the top and you slowly pull it near the grass edges. Bam. In colorado pike are leader shy and don't attack much in most places, but the yampa is a rare exception. Probably be 600 cfs , with slow water in most places although I know where it is fast in a certain area and there is great smallmouth and a few pike DOW can't ruin.Fishdawg said:I would have thought the buzz and spinner baits would not "work" right in a flowing body of water.............. What am I talking about? Pike aren't leader shy brook trout. They will flat attack anything that gets near them. That's part of why I love to fish for them the violence of the strikes. What kind of cfs flows will that river typically be at this time of year? Fast water, skinny water, pools?
I know Sanchez is good and I knew the Rio Grande had pike, but how good is the pike fishing in the Rio Grande? Can you float it or is it only navigable during high flows? I know its smaller than the Yampa.fillets said:that sounds like fun, I love those slimey monsters. Have you ever tried the Rio Grande in Alamosa? Or the Sanchez res? There are BIG pike!!
