Jerry Creek #2 Bluegill

In case you haven't heard they are allowing the take of up to 20 bluegill today, Sat and Sun. There are to many and they are starting to stunt. I took 18 out this morning.
Ute Water has shuttles up the hill and back down when you're finished. They will even allow the kids to use worms.
Great opportunity to take a kid fishing.

The press release says Jerry Creek number 1 but is # 2 which is the smaller and lower reservoir.

I heard and I'm sure folks are taking the smaller, stunted fish.

Hi Pathway, I posted the press release on 8/14/15 in the news section. I don't know the area, the story does state lake #1. Thanks for the correction and update!

Angler's probably could not make a mistake because the reservoir has Ute Water personnel and CPW wardens all over the place. I did see several nice largemouth feeding and the upper lake has plenty of big LMB. A float tube is helpful in the upper reservoir. If you do fish the upper lake watch for Midget Faded Rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus concolor) Venomous Westslope.
