Fish: Creek Chub

Chub spots?

Post By: ColoradoOutdoorsman      Posted: 11/29/2015 11:19:22 PM     Points: 821    
I need to catch some bait for ice fishing badly and I missed my opportunity bowfishing this year for it. I tried bear creek below BCL and it used to be full of the dang things and now there's nothing but fingerling browns. Anybody have suggestions for a place with chubs? Thank you

If you are willing to head up north, the Big T in town is loaded with them, as are most of the other creeks in the area. Just nymph deeper holes with heavier flashy nymphs.

there are some canals up near my house in arvada where i have trapped a bunch the past couple of summers but the water levels have flucuated a lot and i'm not sure if they are still sitting in their normal holes.

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Bonytail/Colorado Round Tail/Flathead/Humpback/Lake and Rio Grande Chubs are all on the endangered species and protected list in Colorado. What is the difference between them and a Creek Chub?

I'm not 100% sure but I'm pretty sure they're separated by the continental divide. And creek chubs aren't true chubs.
