Wiper through the ice at Aurora?

Post By: Big_D      Posted: 1/25/2023 12:56:35 PM     Points: 253    
Has anyone been able to pull a wiper through the ice at Aurora Reservoir lately? Gonna try it again this weekend but I can't seem to find where they are at.

The Wipers at Aurora are ghosts. . .I've never caught one through the ice and the few I have caught in open water are few and far between.My best catchs came right behind Trout stockings at the boat ramp.

Thanks HP! How's your ticker? I'm at 3 months post ablation and I'm able to eat sugar now! Dropped 30 lbs because of the surgery.

I was gonna try the dam cause that's where I found them during summer but I may just try the ramp now.

How is the ice holding up? Thickness?

Ice was around 8 inches as of last Saturday with 5 inches of snow on top. Makes it easy to walk on.

I have not fished Aurora but can tell you that this time of year at Pueblo I've found large schools of fish suspended around 50-60fow over 90'. No idea what fish they were but Wiper is the first species that comes to mind. Probably relaxing in some thermocline/O2 rich water.
