Road Canyon no winterkill

Hit up Road Canyon this weekend. Caught some nice rainbows all between 14-16" but no brookies. Also ran into DOW, asked about winterkill this year, they say the lake is showing no sighs of it. Also checked out the other lakes in the area, all are still frozen.

Thanks hooker 555. Ive been wondering about the ice conditions up that way. I suppose Rito Hondo was frozen, Brown Lakes too? Am very glad the fish survived this winter. You got some nice bows!

Hey Johnski,

Rito Hondo had a little opening at the outlet but not enough to cast. Browns was still frozen. Walked up to Continental and that was frozen too. I didn't check out Rio Grande Reservoir but I figured it should be open with as much water was in the river. I figure in a couple more weeks they should all be open.
