Got up to Idaho Springs yesterday morning to fish Clear Creek. I was Spin fishing, using a 3 inch Gulp Minnow rigged with a weedless hook, and caught a number of 8 to 12 inch Browns and Rainbows. However, I was absolutely shocked when I brought in about a 4 - 5 pound Rainbow. I know Clear Creek holds a lot of smaller trout -- but didn't think it produced Bows that size. It was a PB for me by far! Didn't get a pic, though --- sorry! I wanted to get him back in slow water ASAP.
That's awesome and yes there are some big fish in the creek. Last fall caught 4 over 20inches. 2 of them were snake river cutthroats. Thanks for letting the fish swim again. Good fishing karma Tight lines and Travel Light
