Unusual MA PB, Multi Species Mayhem

Post By: Team CO.F.F.      Posted: 9/9/2021 12:39:59 PM     Points: 291    
With the temperatures dropping and high flows for this time of year, the water temps have been dropping in the Glenwood Springs area on the Colorado River. Reports on the USGS site have been good and Per several shops in the area, they lifted the closure as well...

We decided to hit the morning bite and stop around early afternoon. My friends and I had a great time out on the water, landing multiple species with the HD Trout, Rapala CD, and J-Spec jerkbait. Several patterns worked in the muddy water, but the HD Brown trout seemed to get the most attention. My GF got her PB trout of any species, I landed a very unusual Master Angler fish which wound up shattering my old PB, and I got to fish with a friend I hadn't fished with in over two years!! Can't beat days like this!! Hope you guys enjoy the footage and/or pics!!

That's a trophy sucker, or whatever it is. That thing looks like a Coelocanth. Never had cheering spectators when I was catching a fish. You're at the top of your game 😃

Ya it felt like I was reeling in a log, sucked that my gopro froze right when I hooked into it😢 Hahaha never had that happen either, let alone multiple times in a day...Felt like I was on the MLF😂😂😂

Glad you enjoyed Curtis and thank for the kind words!! It was cool that we got into so many bottom feeders this day, would never guess I'd get a 22" sucker out of the river lol.

Nice catches! I believe thatís a Flannelmouth Sucker? Iíve caught two on the Gunny four years ago. The pictured one was 21Ē! I thought I had a big Brown but saw the extra big lips and my heart sunk! 🎣👊🍻

Probably! I am certainly no expert in IDing fish species, let alone ones that I don't catch much of. Either way, never would I expect to get a 22" sucker of any species lol. Haha I was hoping I hooked into a monster trout, was sort of bummed too but at least it was big🎣😂

Nice video as usual, the water looked pretty dirty but it isn't as bad as it looks over in that area. The river is fishable even though it looks very dirty from the highway. Thanks for sharing.
