    Boyd Lake

    Dan, what is the average size of white bass in Body, what are good lures, and what areas are hot. White bass is about the only species found in Colorado I haven't caught and would like to rectify that.

    SHORT ICE SEASON

    Going in for a total knee replacement tomorrow. Guess that ends my ice fishing season, but will be checking in -and drooling. Keep the posts coming!

    Williams Fork

    That would be, I assume, the Murphy who wrote the law that so many of us live by- especially when it comes to fishing!

    Pictures on this forum

    See my post under "11-mile report 12-14". Just keep up the good work, Dan. Sometime the most thankless jobs are the ones we don't even get paid for. The reason I check out these forums is to get the when, where, and how. I thing a lot of people are using it to stroke their egos. Just my opinion.

    Holiday ice help!

    The last I heard from Granby is that they're going really well from shore, next to dike #3-the usual-16-20" lakers, plus quite a few rainbows. If you go to Grand lake, be carefull. It's so deep that sometimes it doesn't freeze out in the middle. Willow creek is sort of hour glass shaped & if you want to walk that far, where it narrows down in the middle, there is a good possibility of getting into some Kokes- not big, but in the 12-14" range. Wolford is almost always good ice fishing. It's about 6 miles north of Kremling. There is always the possibility of getting a decent fish, but most will be 10-13 "

    11-mile report 12-14

    SLAYERFISH I SAW YOUR PIX ON AT LEAST 2 OTHER FORUMS. GREAT LOOKING FISH-BUT-WHAT'S WRONG W/ THIS FORUM HAVING IT'S OWN RULES. I VENTURE TO GUESS THAT MOST OF THE PEOPLE ON THIS FORUM HAVE SEEN THE PIX ON THE OTHER SITES. WHY DO YOU HAVE YOUR PANTIES IN A BUNCH? DO YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT HOW LOW IT'S HANGING OR SOMETHING?

    Lake John

    John's been fishing great this year. Because of little winter kill the last 2 winters, the average size is pretty decent-14-20". The larger ones all seem to be rainbows, though there are a lot more cutts. I hope that it freezes hard soon. I've got to have a knee replacement the end of Dec., and that'll pretty much end ice fishing for me this winter. Also, the water level's higher this year than I've ever seen it-running over the spillway, which bodes well for no winter kill this year.Last year I caught an almost 5# bow, so there are a few larger fish in there still.

    Ice fishing just around the corner!

    All I know about a Cabala's store for Denver is this: my wife's boss' daughter in law was recently hired from Home Depot by Cabela's to be the manager for the Denver store. She lives in Sterling, as do many of the Sidney store's employees, and is in training at Sidney to open the Denver store.

    Ice fishing just around the corner!

    You don't need to snag Kokanees. They'll hit just about anything orange in color through the ice and it's a lot more fun, at least for me.

    Boyd

    Sharkbait Are you sure those were wipers? I've not heard of them being in Boyd, but it does have quite a few white bass and 9" is about what they run.

    Williams Ford and Wolford

    As for Kokes at Wolford, I've always done best down near the dam. We usually use down riggers, set at about 20 to 30 ft., depending on what we see on the sonar. You don't need much line out behind the rigger ball-20' or so. I do best w/a silver flasher, followed by 18" of leader and a Red Magic(which is almost impossible to find anymore). Any orange lure like a Z ray or Dick Nite will work. A good area is from the last bay on the west side, nearest the dam end, out towards the tower and under the cat walk , then up the east side, 'til you start running into shallower water (1/4 to 1/2 mi. north of the dam. Depending on what year class you get into, the Kokes will run 12" to 20" or so, w/most in the 14-17" range. I've never pike fished at Williams Fork, but it has some nice Kokes too. You can get some supplies at Parshall, but Kremling's better. The fastest way to get to either lake is through Eisenhower and N. on State 9, which runs you right through Kremling anyway. We were at Wolford 2 weekends ago and didn't do well at all. It had rained most of the night, and the lake was pretty muddy all the way to the dam. They don't call it Muddy Creek for nothin'. Good luck

    Arvada Reservoir

    I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about walleye fishing at Arvada. We keep hearing about them being stocked and caught there, but, try as we might, have not as yet caught any. Also, havs the bass fishing picked up there yet? We've only managed to catch a couple of smallies &1 largemouth so far.
