Lake: Platoro Reservoir

Kayak Trout Fishing/Fly Fishing

For Labor Day weekend, Kerri and I loaded up the kayaks and headed to Southern CO. A small town with a nice 1,000 acre reservoir that was home to many of feisty fish who we eager to play. Over the few days there, we spent a lot of time on the water and caught mostly Rainbow trout, but we did manage a handful of Kokanee salmon, Brown trout, and even a surprise small Lake trout. Another great weekend on the water!

Sweet looks real nice, got some GoPro footage? I'm still learning how to edit and whatnot. Could you response to my GoPro post on how you do things? I created my first video with GoPro CineForm last night. Decent.

Cool Awesome video! That is some beautifull country up there. Haven't yet fished Platoro, but would like to with the boat, especially now that I know there are Kokes in the lake! Looks like you were mainly fly and spinner fishing. Is that how you caught the Kokanee? How big were they? Mmm Mmmm, that is a great tastin fish!! Thnx for the info!

Yeah, we caught 4 or 5. I believe everyone fell victim to a kasty. None of them were big, the biggest was the one in the middle of my video. Some from shore and some from kayak.
