Lake: Vallecito Reservoir

Vallecito Personal Best Pike

I left my house this morning in a downpour, having little hope for anything beyond taking my dog for a ride to the lake and back. I was WRONG, weather info was WRONG and the day held 6 hours of good pike fishing. I even got my personal best Vallecito pike. Not half bad.

Nice pike!

One thing I learned about colorado news station and their predictions is that their off by about 4 to 6 hours and sometimes wrong all together.

Good work...seems my absolute best esox (Musky or Pike) days have always been bad weather days, especially a steady rain. Full rainsuit and waterproof footwear are always must-haves.

Might stay in on a blue-bird day...but never when the weather is bad (or good?).
