Good times guys - my kiddos placed well - I on the other hand couldn't seem to pull out anything much bigger than my hand - although if it had been based on sheer numbers I would have won, lol - between me and another boat we pulled in 35 fish for the fry last night - great eatin!
I'll be out there again next week trying to catch the lunkers down deep ::::: woot!
I missed the derby but going up there to fish either Mary's or Lake Estes. Have never fished either one so is there a better part to fish on Estes. It's a pretty big lake and wonder which side to go in at. Thanks.
truckyfd, been here for few years lots of the eyes got flushed out into river last spring, love to try for em though, goin tonight if it clears up ill be in white boat flag me down if u get this, better go to dixon if ur from the midwest get ur LMB fix!
fsndc, there are a few in the river. However, I did the electrofishing with dow last year for the BIG T and there was not a single eye pulled up. So I'm not sure where you're getting your info about them spilling into the river. Not bashing in anyway, just curious where your getting your info.
Last spring before run off I was able to catch several and spotted many more. During runoff i heard multiple reports of fly fisherman catching them below the dam. After runoff last spring i havnt seen or caught any. Granted not the most scientific study but the two seemed connected.
