A couple of us ventured out today to fish a 9,000' elevation reservoir. We got there a little after 9:00 and fished until about 3:00. The area picked up about three to four inches of snow yesterday.

We used medium sinking lines and size 6 & 8 bead head flies in black/green, olive, black/orange/pearl, and red/white. We picked up a good number of fish, all tigers from 12” to 20” long. We were the only ones on the pond today. As my wife, Jeanne says, that should tell you something, everyone else is smarter than that.

The water temperature was 37-39 degrees and the visibility in the water of only about 4’ because algae and the lake turning over. The reservoir level is still at the conservation pool, 18% full.

It was a little chilly when we got there but it warmed up and was melting the snow by the time we left.

It won't be too long for you ice junkies since the water was already down to 37 degrees.
