Tis the time we get up out of the heat to Grand Mesa and take the 4 wheeler to some back country lakes for a few cuties. With the drought these lakes will go down fast since the water in most of them irrigate orchards around Cedaredge. We found some in all age classes in one lake after trying several. Jigging spoons and throwing damsel nymphs produced the best. Most lakes had stocker rainbows but this one held some decent ones. We just kept these four, releasing all others. Location? Somewhere on Grand Mesa. Get the “Grand Mesa Fishing Guide” at the Visitors Center and start exploring! Bring skeeter juice!
