Water Temperature: 51
Caught a common carp in a shallow water cove on the north side of the lake. I had never caught one of these and I am glad I went to braided fishing line this year. My usual 8lb test fluorocarbon line could never have dragged this fat fish in. As it was, I had to put on a glove and wrap the line around my hand in order to get the dang thing out of the water. It took about five minutes to just get it to the rocky ledge where I stood. I didn\'t know what it was after I caught it and I only could get one lousy picture with my dumb cell phone. But it had a catfish type face with only one short \"whisker\" on each side as well as one long dorsal fin. It was very fat and had a mouth more like a sucker fish than a bass. Plus, I have never caught a bass that was this heavy. Since the fish was really fatigued and was bleeding from a cut from one of the treble hooks on my Rapala HuskyJerk#12 lure, and since I had nothing to carry him back to the truck in, I released him back to the water. I didn\'t measure or weigh him but my guess was at least two feet long and about 10 pounds. There still aren\'t any fish popping out there but there are a lot of them moving around near the point bars. Walleye are the most active, but I expect the smallmouth bass to pick up within the next week. Although there are lots of places to bank fish with the water level so high ( 4881.5\' elev ), you need a boat to do this lake some real justice.

Walleye are definitely moving around in pre-spawn activities. I caught a 15\" Walleye just off of a rocky point in a depth of only about 5 feet. It was just as the sun hit the horizon. The fish attacked a large jerkbait that I was basically using to do some long casting before putting away the gear. I feel the smallies will be more active in another week or so.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Pueblo Reservoir at 56 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie fishing should be getting good to great now. Crappie function excellent in 56 degree water. Crappie will be nicely bunched up still and moving more aggresively than when the water temperature is in the 35 to 50 degree range. With baitfish getting more active, the crappie fishing will be good. Good luck today!

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Pueblo Reservoir Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon is right around the corner. The gravitational pull is starting to increase with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
