Barker Update

Post By: NativeCuttie      Posted: 11/16/2016 3:53:06 PM     Points: 386    
Anyone been lately? I never have much luck there but looking for somewhere to go this weekend to take my family that rarely goes. Was looking for something just outside the city where they would be able to catch some fish.

I was up 2 weeks ago, slow fishing, caught one small brook 5 inches with worm, Kokes were not running and only a few in the pools, no one that day had luck snagging. saw 1 guy on the south side land 2 kokes and 2 15" rainbows he said on a copper spoon, good luck up there

I saw it on the stocking report so was wondering if things had picked up. Thanks for the update.

Its has been very slow and I have yet to see any thing bigger than 6" come out. best chance are to fish St. Vrains since the trouts are stocked and your able to get the family into some fish..

Thanks Gucci, there was an early pod and later run, likely strange weather made them run later than normal, also some browns and rainbows to be had

Species info page is still showing Barker as a home for grayling.
Just wondering when was the last grayling seen up there?

I caught grayling up there two years ago. That's the last time I fished there.

I didn't end up going. If anyone did I hope they had some luck!
