Escaping the triple digit heat was goal 1, catching n releasing pretty cutts was goal 2. Took the kayak to lake 1, caught n released four pretty fish, looked like they had just finished spawning. Red spoons and green Montera Marvels. The next lake had bigger fish but by 1 it was raining, so left the kayak in the truck, used a pink n orange spoon to get a couple decent ones before the real rain shut down the bite. This female still had a couple eggs left so they are at the tail end. Slow bite with spawn but should pick up now if you find a lake that isn't starting turnover, these two lakes are on Grand Mesa. Lots and lots of people up there today.
