Fish: Cutbow Trout

Master Angler Cuttbows All Day

Iíve been putting a lot of time in for the Colorado Walleye Trail and focusing on walleye. Decided to switch to Trout fishing. Decided to try the lake with no fish in it. It was a beautiful Cinco de Mayo in the South Park area. The typical egg patterns and the leach were crushing it. It doesnít take much skill but it was fun catching trophy size trout not seen anywhere else in the state. Here is a video [log in for link]

Some pictures of the fish as well.

Your dog looks happy!
My fishing partner brings his dog on the boat when we fish together . . .anytime someone reels in a fish,he has to sniff and lick the fish.God forbid we throw a fish back . . .that dog barks at us like it was his fish! LOL!

Iím happy you found fish. Lots of guys arenít finding them. But when you do the rewards are sweet. The biggins pull hard. BTW show no background at all. Iím not the only one that knows the lake well.

HP, that is a well behaved dog good sir. It wasnít my pup it was the guide fishing next to us!

Ifly, Iím surprised not many are catching since the two flies I use are universal every April and May on most lakes and rivers. I was just making a video not showing background can be a bit hard. I think the placing the camera behind us better next time. Thank you sir.

I always thought you wasnt allowed to fish the homestake channel and cove tho?

There is a no fishing sign about 50' south of the ramp but being a gold medal lake they should close the whole cove during the spawn. Reminds me of the Toilet Bowl on the Pan. They're stacked in there thick when Homestake is flowing and the pelicans are getting fat. Both ramps are still locked

VINNIE,

I agree a 100%! Thereís just too many fish there and it isnít a challenge to catch. My buddy took me there for the first time. I normally just fish it left of the main boat ramp or boat fish it all over the place.

Wapiti,

I would never break the regulations. Their clearly stated where you cannot fish. Next to the boat ramp away from being in the way of boats and towards the main lake is good. There a sign not too far away and thankfully everyone respects regulations there from what Iíve seen.
