I have trouble finding walleye and wiper in Pueblo in August and September. Just wondering if anyone has any tactics that work during these months? I've been dragging lindy rigs but can't seem to locate either. So I might start trolling next.

This is total speculation on my part: I might try some reaction style baits. Stuff like blades, jigging raps, snap jigging plastics.

Pueblo probably has a ton of shad right now, so fishing is probably tough.

Fished Pueblo this Sunday. Because it was the weekend, the boat traffic made it nearly impossible to fish popular walleye areas after 9am. The shad are thick down there for sure. I will post a video on the trip later this week if you are interested.

Its pretty tough out there right now in general. Water temp is right around 80 the past few evenings over shallow water. I wouldnt know where to start looking for the walleye. We have caught a few drifting with worms but they were tiny. Waiting for the wiper action. We have been seeing boils here and there but they are nothing like years past. The wiper we have had eyes on in the boils have been small. Their boils are done in seconds as well. Last year at this time was completely different in a good way. Im hoping the action will pick up soon.

Gave it another try on 8/19. Its still kind of slow, managed a couple dozen blue gill and bass and two walleye trolling. Some of the bass are spitting up shad but I'm not seeing that many for this time of year. No wiper boils. Hope it picks up soon. water temp is about 77. No doubt to many shad to get them to bite anything.
