It's hot and I mean the fishing if you can locate them.. Who's still catching fish? Local reservoirs are still producing.

Im giving it a rest until temps arent around 100. My logbooks say we dont catch anything in August anyhow.

Gotta call your shots. Look for clean water that hasnít started turning over yet. Morning and evening. Rivers. Deep water in places like Williams Fork, Taylor, etc.

Nice replies, we found the crappies on the drop offs and not congregated together but welling to take the bait as it dropped to them. We had to move from coves to coves to catch a limit. The white bass were schooling and easy pickings if you can locate them in 15 to 20 FOW. It's fun when they are thick on the bottom, just jigging them up. Any bait will suffice but spoons seems to be the key. For crappies, paddle tail, fin spins, and Johnson crappie busters curly tails are key since water were heavily stain this time of the year. Good luck and be safe.

Things are going well but sticking to above 8K elevation, preferred around 10K! Tough bite at lower elevations!

Of course, fishing is still hot with water temperatures still climbing. Not as much action at the bigger lakes, but local ponds are doing fine.

Also lots of multispecies days. No specific time, just tossing what works.

I have been reading posts on FishExplorer for awhile and just signed up so I could post today. Anyway, I use live minnows (purchased shiners from a licensed dealer in Berthoud, CO and in Hasty, CO) in areas where live bait is legal. I have been catching from 4 in to 12 in largemouth bass. I took a trip to Two Buttes Reservoir (nearly dry) this week. Behind the dam, in what is called the Black Hole, there are fish. I lost the biggest bass I have ever seen there. Anyway, I do not eat fish but judging by your pictures, you certainly do. Enjoy!

Fishing in the dog days of summer has been good if you can stand the heat. John Martin has been very good but it is way to hot so it takes some of the fun out of it.

Nice laker bratfish. Definitely having to go up high elevation to catch my fish mostly because I don't enjoy the heat and seek cooler refuge like the trout.

Yeah I lost a good pike the other day. Heats definitely not fun.

Definitely some nice catches.
