Memorial Day @ Blue Mesa

What a trip. Had multiple 50 fish days and even a 100 fish day. Caught 12-14 fish between 22" and 32". All the fish there are so fat that anything over 20" looks huge and puts up a good fight. Learned how to sharp shoot Lakers using sonar. Learned you can basically lindy rig for Lakers by dragging a tube really slow. Probably one of the best fishing trips ever.

Granby 5-18 and 5-19

Took my friend Joe fishing at Granby. Water temp was about 45-48. We fished the channels in about 38-40 FOW. Did really well. 35ish fish the first day with one 26". It was just me the second day and I only fished about 2 hours. Got 10 or 11 with one measuring 27.25". The 27"er put up a really good fight, I thought I had hooked into a 30"er.

This weekend I set a new goal for myself. Calling it a 'hat trick'. A fish each in the same day from Granby, Willow Creek, and Williams Fork. The best I have managed so far is a bunch from Granby and one from Willow Creek in the same day.

That weekend I also hit Willow Creek and Williams Fork. Managed one small Rainbow from Willow Creek. We were only at Williams Fork for about 15 minutes before we got blown off.

Granby 5-10 to 5-13

Fished the channels in Granby Thursday to Sunday. Water temp between 42 and 46. Depth about 38-40 feet. Fishing was great, I personally had a 30 fish day on Saturday. Between the wife and I we caught about 90 fish in 3 days. Sunday we went to Williams Fork and tried trolling and got skunked. Also hit up Monarch and Willow Creek in the evening. Caught a small trout on my 9 weight at Willow Creek.

I definitely plan on going back to Williams Fork. I want to target pike but not sure how to do it from my boat with the wind blowing it around. Think I just need a longer casting rod.
