Kokanee-Wolford-fishing with my son Nick...

Well my son (Sgt. Grillo) U.S. Army firefighter extraordinaire, surprised me on a visit these past 3 days. I asked where do you want to fish, he said away from Denver, somewhere he hasn't been since leaving Co. So we went to Wolford-his first time, and we slammed her well... I caught my limit in 3 hrs. and Nick caught 12, lost a bunch at the boat being a bit of a rookie to the kokes. Nick also hooked about a 3lb. brown at the west end in the coves, couldn't leave the fly rod down. He kept about 4-5 to take home, we had a great day on the water. We trolled sling blades-6" pink/holo, we trolled kokonut mack lures pink and pink/flash, worked awesome, and we were 12-21' down, speed was a constant 1.38 on the I-pilot... S turns were the key as well, every time we slowed up, more than sped up, we got hit.

P.S. Nick-for all you military guys-just graduated honor grad Air Assault school, was invited to be an instructor, but he is on his way to Ft. Benning to Airborne school-Ranger school... HOORAH !!!

Very nice, glad you got time with your son and some Kobe’s too.

Cool on the honor grad, now on to jump school for some real wings!

I am glad to see they are biting again. I has been pretty slow the past few weeks. A few of those are some of the bigger ones that I have seen come out of there. Congrats!!!!!!!
