Fished Chatfield saturday in a 1/2 day bass tournament. The reservoir is high and muddy, clarity a foot or so. Water temperatures were in the upper 50's. However, the smallmouth were surprisingly active and a variety of lures worked. Fish were taken on an assortment of cranks, small tubes and grubs. Best fish was 16 1/4. The rip rap areas and Massey Draw produced the majority of the fish. The west end was slow for our group.
