Toilet Bowl Action, Cold but awesome

Post By: Team CO.F.F.      Posted: 11/5/2020 1:46:02 PM     Points: 42    
Hit the Toilet Bowl on the Frying Pan River on 10/26...This was of course at the end of the storm that hit, took a few hours to get there but it was worth the terrible road conditions. We got there around 7:00AM and the trout were full surface jumping all over the place!

The bite was active Sam and I pulled in a bunch of Browns and Cutbows using HD Trout and J-Spec crankbaits/jerkbaits. Sam also got her PB Brown Trout at 20" and around 3 1/2 pounds! My fingers were too numb to fly fish continuously with the cold and wind that morning.

The current flowing into the toilet bowl also wasn't running so the water was stagnant.

Overall, GREAT Time fishing an active bite and we were the only ones there the entire morning!! Hope you enjoy the drone shots and the fish!!🎣

Only you young fishing fanatics could pull such nice things from a toilet bowl. Love the pics and vids as always.

Nice video! Want to fish there once for sure. Does that ever cap enough to ice fish it?

Thanks man! It was a cold but awesome morning...She was ecstatic to catch that, she was freezing and not having the best time before that catch lol.

It's an active place with people typically, we just try and go during the worst times of the year haha...Not that I've heard of, usually there is big water flow going in there, it was the first time I've fished there and not seen the spillway, spilling!

Great video as usual, there must be a ton of fish in that hole to catch that many even without the current flowing. I must say that 10 degrees is way to cold for most people but the reward was worth it for you guys.

COFF & SirGreg- I’ve seen some tanks come out of the first 1/4 mile! If you plunge a few biggins’ out of the Toilet Bowl you might just see some Brown Rainbows! 😜🎣💩🌈

Thank you!! It seems like it...You could hear them jumping inside the tunnel too and banging against the grates, the jumps were nonstop for the first few hours we were there, I only put in the best ones in the video...Haha ya we typically go there when it's really crummy to avoid the crowds. The drive up was terrible!

Some of the best fishing is skiing weather
But not many people do it
Cheers

Can't argue with that...I had to quit skiing/snowboarding back in High School because of Basketball, haven't picked it up since. Cheers🍻🍻
