Blue River after stocking

Quick video of the Blue River, under the I-70 over pass, right after the CPW trucks left. This was a couple months ago, and the run off has sent most of these fish downstream, so please don't beat me up for posting this.

those look like bigger than normal stocker size...I thought they quit stocking broods?

(or am I mistaken?)

sad that a once great river has to be stocked with bigger fish...... Instead of answering the call to improve the fishery as a whole.

Im pretty sure it has been stocked with big fish for a long, long time.

That said, I used to be able to catch quality fish quite a ways downstream of town, but the last few times I went (a few years ago) were a bust with no signs of life at all.

I know historically it had been stocked with large fish butI remember talk last year of them stopping the stocking of broods..guess thats not the case then huh
