My friend Dan took me fishing at Cherry Creek to show me how to troll there. We trolled bad shads at about 1.8 mph just above bottom. Caught about 6 fish with one keeper. Not a bad day. Learning how to long line and use down riggers was interesting. I think it will be very useful when the fish are scattered.
Chatfield and Cherry Creek are open for boating. Now that I only live about 10 minutes from Cherry Creek I want to starting fishing there more often. I think early spring, and during the week in the summer are the only times I'll really be able to go. On the weekends in the summer Cherry Creek gets too much boat traffic to fish.
Anyway, got the boat ready Friday after work and took off to the Creek late Saturday morning. Only got a few bites, but It was really good to get the boat out.
