Showed up to Rifle Gap Reservoir this past Saturday and had great success landing into 4 different species. Walleye, Pike, Rainbow Trout, and Smallmouth Bass...EVERYTHING caught on the Ned Rig. 3"Gary Yamamoto Orange Pumpkin Senko and also a pink/orange 2" Micro Minnow swimbait for two of the fish.
Rifle Gap is really low right now, lowest I've ever seen it...My GF who has lived out in or near Rifle for most of her life hasn't ever seen it this low either. We pulled up around 10AM and the lake was full of rises all over...We walked out to a spot that is revealed in the video, that isn't normally accessible for bank fishing unless you take a boat to it...Muddy to get to but worth it. The rises were a mixture of bass, pike, and trout that I could see. Tried a multitude of moving baits but the Ned Rig was the best way to go...Had a guy fishing next to us later in the morning that caught a couple on the Ned Rig as well. Was surprised to get a few pike on the Ned rig too lol.
Hope you guys enjoy the video! We stayed until very early afternoon, a windstorm was coming in and we decided to head out after a good late morning of fishing! [log in for link]
