Fish: Brown Trout

River Fishing the Fork and Colorado, 3 spots

Post By: Team CO.F.F.      Posted: 1/28/2021 1:30:46 PM     Points: 45    
Went out with my buddy recently and fished 3 different locations along the Roaring Fork River and Colorado River. Had a great time out enjoying the warmish weather and slamming some fish. We caught 3 different species, including Brown, Cutbow, and Rainbow...Some small, some medium, and a few big!

HD Brown Trout and the J-Spec 9mile Goby pattern did some great work and landed all the fish that day besides one!

River was low even for this time of year but makes sense with the prior year we had. Water was clear though and the fish were active for the most part🎣

Hope you guys enjoy the video and/or pics!! Got some good underwater releases with the clear water!

Nice video of some winter fishing, I like the looks of that new lure you had in the last spot. It seemed like the slower water was more productive as you would expect in the cold water.

Trying to decide between the river and the ice this weekend. Maybe its both. That brown looks like he could chomp a muskrat. Appreciate the videos and reports. Great stuff.

Appreciate that as always😃 I'm really pumped to try that lure out in the deeper lakes on the Mesa this year!!

That is usually our dilemma when it comes to winter fishing. We love ice fishing but really love the rivers too. Glad you enjoyed!!
