What is your favorite species to target in Colorado, though I would like to catch wiper all day and night long, they are a harder fish to target because they move a lot, so I love to target the Kentucky Bass or AKA spotted bass, I can usually find these guys from February through November at the local reservoir I fish, one of my favorite ways I catch them is with an ultra-lite rigged with a finesse worm or a curly tail grub and 16/0 oz to 1/8 oz jig head bouncing the edge/shelf or drop shot with a wacky rigged worm, vigorous and strong fighters but still a very pretty fish to catch.
This was from tonight, caught on a white curly tail.
What is your favorite fish to catch and what method do you use?
I think big brown trout and smallmouth are tied for favorite fish to catch. I love to feel a big brown smash a streamer and I usually throw leech patterns if I'm fly fishing or a ned rig if I'm not fly fishing for the smallmouth.

Maybe walleye but everything else is great though too so that's a really tough question. The reason I picked walleye is because to consistently get them you need to adapt and have various fishing methods and knowledge about them. A lot of people say walleye is the best meat, I think they are good but pike, white bass, perch, crappie, and wiper are at least as good when cooked fresh imo.
Like 'em all. Take pride in diversity, to date 2017, brook, brown, rainbow, yellow perch, walleye, white bass, wiper, walleye, white and black crappie, common carp (and mirror variation), bluegill, green sunfish, pumpkin seed, smallmouth and largemouth bass, creek chub, and gizzard shad. The seasons just getting rolling.
