FISHING REPORT

Weekly Fishing Report 05.21.15

MEMORIAL HOLIDAY WISHES: We hope you have a great holiday and take a moment to remember all the great men and woman who have served and died so we may live free in the best country on the planet.

MARINA STORE HOURS: Monday - Sunday 7:00AM to 7:00PM

Contact Us to book your 11 Mile Marina Guide TripLots of nice fish like this coming out. Not the contest winner but a winner in his book.

CURRENT CONDITIONS: Effective this holiday weekend all park facilities are open. Wet conditions have continued but the basic pattern of fairly nice mornings followed by showers later in the day has been been in play. Its actually very good fishing conditions. The water is warming up slowly keeping the big fish on the Spring prowl. Changing weather conditions create opportunities to hit very agggressive bites. NOAA forcast for the weekend here is not all that bad. Temperatures in the 50's nice in the morning with a chance of afternoon showers. The good news is the wind has not been bad.

WATER FLOW: 51.3 CFS IN  78.4 CFS OUT   157 CFS IN Above Spinney       WATER TEMP: 50

TROUT: GOOD: The big fish in last weeks No Name was 8.25lbs. Many anglers in general caught nice Trout in the three to five pound range. 

The boaters on the troll did much better this week. Many fish in the 12 to 16 inch range with a good number of bigger ones. Needlefish and Kastmasters worked well along with Tas Devils and Rapala.

Shore action was up and down with the weather. Night action was best at sundown and between Midnight and 2:00AM. Spawn sacks are still working well with Power Bait being very effective at certain times of the day. And never forget the Night Crawlers and a mallow.

Fly anglers are doing well pulling Black Woolly Buggers, Hare's Ear and San Juan Worms. The hatches happen as the sun comes out. It takes just minutes and the bite can be on. Look to Cross Creek, Sucker Cove and Rocking Chair to Howbert.It's time to have some fishin fun!

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR TO POOR: A few fish are beginning to turn up. Straight out from the Marina has been decent for fish in the two pound range. Sling Blades and Dodgers with a variety of trailers have stirred them to hit. Fish have been located in deeper water suspended at 15 to 30 feet. Duck Island to Deer Island has also seen some action. Look for improvement as we move forward into June.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO POOR: There are fish being caught sporadicly and some pretty big ones at that. There have been 10 to 20 plus pounders landed but only but a lucky few and they were fishing for Trout. It's like they are coming out of hibernation and only eating light snacks at the moment. A little Chartreuse Power Bait here a little tube jig there.

NEW PRODUCT PREVIEW: Trolling is a very popular and highly successful method of fishing the high lakes of Colorado. Like any technique it may be more of an art than just dragging a bait behind your boat. Many facets determine whether or not you will catch fish, certainly more than can be covered here. Needless to say equipment is where to start. Lead Core line  combo rigs give you the ability to put your bait where the fish are often suspended particularly in the summer. We carry Eagle Claw and Shakespeare Combo rigs with 100 yards of lead line and leader ready to fish starting out at $109.95. If you get one from us you will get full instruction if you need it on use and how to tie your leader to the lead line like a Pro.

Weekly Fishing Report 05.14.15

MARINA STORE HOURS: Monday - Sunday 7:00AM to 7:00PM

Contact Us Stop in for a free cup of coffee and talk fishing. The difference between getting your tackle with us and getting it almost anywhere else is ours comes with local knowledge about what is hot at the time and where the hot spots are. We will show you on the map where to go. He worked hard and got a nice one.

CURRENT CONDITIONS: Things have dried out  a little bit. There is no snow on the ground. All fishing access areas are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp is closed. Both ramps at North Shore are open. All other Park facilities are open. Water  temp is still cold. Water clarity is good. The weather forecast calls for some moisture over the weekend but the wind has been dropped from Saturday in our forecast and thats always a good thing. Sunday looks like a sunshine day.

WATER FLOW: 51.3 CFS IN  78.4 CFS OUT   157 CFS IN Above Spinney       WATER TEMP: 48

TROUT: GOOD: The action is not hot and heavy but the quality of the fish is outstanding. Lots of nice ones in the 3 to 6 pound range being caught and landed. Although the shoreline continues to be the hot spot with the spawn still going on, boaters are starting to pick up a few more fish in their outings. Trolling is not as effective as drifting and pitching tube jigs or dragging a Rapala. The trollers will see fish but not as big as those working the extreme shallows. Witchers Cove, Howbert and  North Shore are a few of the hot spots.

KOKANEE SALMON:POOR

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO POOR: Still not many fish but a few nice ones have been landed up to 10 pounds. Large baits like Rapala and large white tube jigs have been effective. Most of the action has been West.

NEW PRODUCT PREVIEW: HARDWARE: There are lots of artificial lures out there and many of them work. We tend to concentrate on the ones that work here. Seasons changes and so do the lures that work best. This time of year it is Rapala. The Spring Spawn brings out the aggressiveness in the fish and they love to attack a fish looking lure. There are other fish imitations out there but the Rapala is our favorite. The jointed ones are particularly good this time of year. A new line that Rapala introduced last year called Balsa Extreme are high quality in the old vain made from balsa wood with a great paint job. The jointed ones are just plain hot. We have have a great selection of Rapala's with an emphasis on jointed, Husky Jerk, Count Downs and Shad Raps. All catch fish here in the Spring and big fish at that. We fish them on the troll or pitch them in the coves and shallows.

Weekly Fishing Report 05.07.15

MARINA STORE HOURS: Monday - Sunday 7:00AM to 7:00PM

Contact Us Spinney on Wednesday. Conditions were just great.

CURRENT CONDITIONS: As with most places around the State it has been wet. Most days have seen decent mornings and early afternoons with rain to follow. The fish are already wet and changing weather makes for good fishing. Spring conditions in effect. The wind has not been bad. The spawn is still on here and at Spinney. Only the  North Shore boat ramps are open. Sure the weather has been wet but they make great outdoor gear and a little rain never stopped us.George from Newfoundland at Spinney on Wednesday

WATER FLOW: 51.1 CFS IN  94.4 CFS OUT          WATER TEMP: 47

TROUT: FAIR TO  GOOD: Boaters still are having mixed results but there are some very nice fish being landed. Shore anglers are also finding conditions vary from really hot to really not. Night time is fun. Rapala's, Tube jigs, Flies and Bait all have their moments. The West end tends to be fishing better than the East.

KOKANEE SALMON:POOR

NORTHERN PIKE: POOR:

NEW PRODUCT PREVIEW: BAIT. Know your CPW regulations when fishing. Many lakes have different requirements or restrictions. Here at the Mile bait is allowed. Live Minnows are not permitted but Night Crawlers, Leeches and Water Dogs are. Soft baits, salmon eggs, mallows and the like are legal.

THE EGGS: This is the time of year when salmon eggs, spawn sacks and similar artificial baits like Gulp Salmon Eggs work very well. These baits can be fished directly on the bottom using split shot or egg sinker or in sack presentations floated just off the bottom. We seasonally have spawn sacks tied for sale either with or with out a float. The float sacks tend to work better at night and the regular work better during the day. Pautske's is the leader in the egg department although there are plenty of other brands to choose from. Just like Power Bait these eggs come in different sizes, colors, with or without glitter and on and on. Some times the most effective presentation is just a single egg on the smallest of hooks off a split shot laying on the bottom. Stop in if you want to talk eggs and we will show you some interesting new products including a kit to tie your own sacks like a Pro.And then there's Eleven Mile.....where the ladies always do good!

HALF PRICE BOAT RENTAL MONDAYS IN MAY(Holiday excluded) AND JUNE. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. RESERVATIONS NOW BEING TAKEN

10% MILITARY DISCOUNT ON BOAT RENTALS FOR ACTIVE MILITARY MONDAY- FRIDAY ALL SEASON

WATER FLOW: 51.1 CFS IN   78.4  CFS OUT        WATER TEMP: 46

CURRENT CONDITIONS: Heavy snow last week brought great water. All has melted now and all fishing access areas are open. Witchers Cove boat ramp opens Memorial Holiday.

TROUT: FAIR TO GOOD: If you happened to be at the North Shore Boat Cove last Saturday you got to experience some of the finest Trophy fishing Eleven Mile has to offer. At about 2:00PM a herd of monster Rainbows and Cuttbows moved into the cove and were hitting. Flies, lures and bait were on the menu. By Howard's count Jeremy caught 11 over five pounds off his float tube. The seven pound bruiser in the pic took a spawn sack fished just right. Those there know all about patience. To catch fish like that you start at sun up and fish until sun down if that's what it takes. This is the time of year to do it from shore. Boaters have been frustrated for the most part. As the water warms the action will pick up out there. But the boats can cover a lot of shore line and can do just fine if the stay shallow. Work 12 feet with the jointed Rapala's.

KOKANEE SALMON: NO REPORT

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR TO POOR: Just a few smaller fish but it won't be long.

NEW PRODUCT PREVIEW: BAIT. Know your CPW regulations when fishing. Many lakes have different requirements or restrictions. Here at the Mile bait is allowed. Live Minnows are not permitted but Night Crawlers, Leeches and Water Dogs are. Soft baits, salmon eggs, mallows and the like are legal.

POWER BAIT: When it comes to soft bait PB is King. Berkley has a lock. Many have tried to break their dominance but to no avail. Since the days when there were only basic colors never a year goes by when new scents, colors and shapes are introduced. The last few years have seen the rise of Garlic and Salmon Peach. Both scents had original colors but we now have Salmon Peach in Rainbow and Red and Garlic is spreading like wildfire hitting the Chartreuse, Rainbow and Yellow. Funny thing they all work. But PB is like other baits. Not all the colors and scents work all the time. You have to switch up to see what those dang fish want. Currently we have mail in for Power Bait products. Rebates. Buy two get 5 bucks back.
