Lake: Jumbo Reservoir (Julesburg)

Conditions and Geese

Wondering if anyone has been to Jumbo recently or knows the ice conditions and goose count out there. Hoping to fish some open water and wouldn't mind bringing my shotgun if Snow Geese are around.

Best guess is the lake is still capped. It's been very cold out that way. As for the sky carp no idea.

It's been pretty cold out here the past few weeks. I would plan on ice. I haven't been out there recently but everywhere else out east here is frozen.

There has been an abundance of snow geese out there every trip I made this winter.

"Sky carp". Lost my$!* on that one. My mom says that quail are the Filet mignon of the sky....

Hopefully you didnt take your gun down there. You can't hunt geese at Jumbo or Red Lion res. They are protected sanctuaries, even for Snow geese during the special season.

Serrfisherman, I actually found that out a few days after I posted when pulled up the SWA map and contacted CPW. Kinda misleading that the brochure says waterfowl hunting is allowed but the whole place is off limits to geese. Thanks for the heads up though!
