Set up a bobber and leader and attached a little fly to it. Caught 65 trout in the river near the Valco Ponds in 3 hours. Even the fly fishermen were doing pretty good out there. None of the fish were very large, but I did catch a few in the 14-15 inch range. Most were from 10-13 inches. The water is flowing at only about 65 CFS and the trout are sitting in the holes striking at passing bugs and flies. Most of my hits were about two feet below the surface. This was my best day all winter, but I have had several good days since late November. Even caught a 5lb bass up in the lake last week.

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.

Pueblo Reservoir Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Pueblo Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 78 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Pueblo Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.
Pueblo Reservoir Walleye Rating:
3.5
Pueblo Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
