North Park Fishing Report 6/10/12
Lake John Resort
Many years ago, when I was asked to start writing fishing articles for our local newspaper, The Jackson County Star, the only thing I was told by my editor (and owner of the paper), was just donít say anything that isnít true. And to the best of my knowledge, ability, and sources, that has not, and will not, happen. Something else I try to avoid is redundancy, but that can be a fairly tall order. Weíve all read fishing reports posted in sporting goods stores, on websites, and in media articles, that never seem to change ó at least very little ó and I have always vowed to not to let that happen.
That said, the fishing in North Park isnít just good ó itís getting better and better. Lake Johnís fish are getting bigger, the Delaneys put out some good quantities of decent sizes all week long, and Cowdrey Lake has been producing 2 and 3 lb. trout regularly. The not-so-good part of this report, but still the same, has been the wind, and anyone, big and small, young or old, who doesnít mind the Colorado breeze will catch fish. Methods are as many as the people using them. On Lake John bait fishermen are using Power Bait, worms, and eggs from both shore and craft. Fly guys are tossing bugs from beach and boat, while casters and trollers are using lures and spinners of every kind to land fish. Various lures and flies have been working at all three Delaney Butte Lakes during the past week, with slot fish the majority catch. Remember, no baits of any kind.
Well, Iím sure parts of this report still sound a little redundant, so in order to change this yarn up a bit, hereís a brand new twist Iím sure youíve never heard before:
When you get the urge to do some good fishing, not just any lake will doÖ
When you go to just any lake, your urge does not get satisfiedÖ
When your urge does not get satisfied, you take your frustrations out on your wifeÖ
When you take your frustrations out on your wife, she pokes you in the eye with your own fishing poleÖ When you get poked in the eye with your own fishing pole, you need to wear an eye patch.
We all know what happens when you wear an eye patch.
Donít worry about wearing an eye patch.
Come to North Park and go fishing on any lake.
