TROUT: GOOD: It’s hard to catch a fish below 16 inches. Many techniques and methods are succeeding from shore and boat. We really like jigging this time of year. Above fish pic caught right off the breakwater barrels. Last weeks pic also caught in Marina area. When we tell people who ask where are the fish? and we tell them right out back we are not joking. The North Shore Marina area has traditionally held lots of big fish especially in the Fall and Spring. Tas Devils on the troll. Lots of hardware working. Marabou and tube jigs hitting the mark. Scuds and Woolly Buggers bend the fly rod. Shore anglers need to stay close to their rigs. Night anglers getting cold but the action is hot. Salmon Peach Power bait and Night-crawlers/mallow from shore.
KOKANEE SALMON:NO REPORT

NORTHERN PIKE: VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT: October is one of the best months and that seems to be the case as action continues to be lots of fun. Most fish in the 24 to 33 inch range but the big ones are on the prowl. Big Sticks with orange bellies continue to be their favorite. Action has been found all around the lake. According to CPW this years gill net surveys showed more Northern’s than in previous years. Early, mid morning and early afternoon are good times. They like the tube jigs too. You might get bit f here and there but they’re cheap and work. We have caught large ones of you lip em.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

YUP What about Rapala’s?YUP What about Gerber knives? YUP What about Power Bait? YUP What about Nightcrawlers? NOPE But most everything else. ONE DAY ONLY!

MARK YOUR CALENDAR: EAGLE CLAW PRESENTS THE 2020 COLORADO CLASSIC ICE FISHING TOURNAMENT SERIES: GRAND SLAM JANUARY 11, SOUTH PARK ICE MASTERS FEBRUARY 8, MARINA MARCH MADNESS MARCH 7.

TROUT: GOOD: Lots of great action for most although there are those having a difficult time Usually people with little experience here. Those in the know have been having a great time. Trolling or pitching on the West End from Stoll Mountain and Rocking Chair to points West to Suckers Cove and the North shore side of the lake. Tasmanian Devil in Y82 pattern has been hot as it often is in the Fall. 1/4oz and 1/8oz Black Marabou jigs have also come on strong. Tube jigs in white, motor oil and green have been consistent. Action can be had all over the lake with Fall perhaps one of the best times of the year. We have been catching big Cuttbows up to 7 pounds consistently in the North Shore Marina Cove right out our back door. Smaller crowds and bigger fish make for a great day. Power, Fire Bait in addition to crawler/mallow sandwich productive from shore. Get an extra rod stamp if you don’t already have one and sit your bait pole in a holder and pitch a Kastmaster or tube jig with the other. Double the fun.

KOKANEE SALMON:POOR : Four year olds showing up here and there. Mostly one and two, mostly on Tas Devils and mostly in 40 feet of water off of Rocking Chair. Lead core or down rigger although some have not been but two colors of line out and the lead core has been more successful than the down rigger. Don’t bank on catching one itsa luck thing.

NORTHERN PIKE: VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT: The Pike Tournament saw 22 out of 30 teams weigh in over 495 lbs of fish. Larger fish on the prowl in 10 to 12 feet of water. Work the weed lines and drop offs. Sticks and Bill’s Spinner Baits doing well with anything having orange in it the best. The radical FB catch and release Pike crowd hit our FB page this week in response to a contest pic posted. The record shows these are first timers on our page. These people’s behavior is unacceptable considering CPW encourages the harvest of Northern’s. It is flat out wrong and probably illegal to incite vandalism and violence. It’s one thing to disagree its quite another to make threats against us and others. We have and will continue to block and report to FB those that think it is OK behavior to deal in threats and incitement to act in a violent manner against others who are doing what is totally legal. If you have problems with regulations deal with CPW but leave others alone with your nonsense . These people aren’t sportsmen. Freedom of speech is one thing threats and incitement are quite another. We will deal with them in the appropriate manner and law enforcement is one of them if it comes to that.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

Contest results to be posted on the Contest Page soon. Many large fish became a late lunch which was absolutely delicious for the crowd. Reports from contestants saw stick baits being very productive in 10 to 12 feet of water worked extremely fast. Blue and Silver HJ14 was particularly good. In fact many sticks with orange belly’s were really hot. Look to Firetiger and perch patterns that all have orange belly’s and get ready to rumble. Where are the best spots?

These fish have no predators accept themselves and if left unchecked they can decimate Trout populations.

We like to refer to it as a “catch and eat” event. But you can never win when it comes to the catch and release Pike crowd. The contest is good for the lake regardless of what they think or CPW would not be a sponsor.

NORTHERN PIKE: GOOD: Action has steadily improved for many anglers. More fish then we have seen all Summer. Big Sticks like Husky Jerks and big Spoons like Daredevles were doing really good. Bill’s Spinner Baits in Black/Blue and Chartreuse/ White also did well. Although soft Swim Baits look awfully good when retrieved just right apparently not good enough for the Pike as they were the least performing bait on the menu for us. It is pretty typical to see Pike action pick up as we move into Fall. We really like October for big fish action. Serious Fishermen Team Pike Tournament sign up forms available at Marina, Valley Country Tackle and Sportsman’s Warehouse in Colorado Springs. Hope to have on line sign up today or tomorrow.

TYPICAL: fish 13 to 16 inches. STANDARD: fish 16 to 20 inches. LUNKER: fish 20 to 25 inches GUNKER: fish bigger than 25 inches.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. All Park facilities are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp open Friday through Sunday. Water level was dropping for the last few weeks. It has stabilized and is coming up slowly. You just never can predict when Denver Water and City of Aurora move water from Spinney downstream. Spinney levels currently dropping. Eleven Mile is traditionally stable with slight fluctuations like we see now. River flows can and do effect fishing. The Dream Stream at current flow is good for angling. The Canyon is a little low but still has lots of nice pools holding fish.

TROUT: GOOD: Action remains consistent although some times a little more effort is required. Trolling lead core with Tas Devils has been productive. Down rigger with a variety of baits has also been consistent. Fish suspended from 20 to 30 feet. Always work the bottom too no matter where you are. We have had good days on the #502 Gold Super Duper, Needlefish brass bikini and Kastmaster with anything gold on it. Tube jigs have been hit and miss but when they hit it’s been very good. Shore anglers see best action early and late in the day. Night fishing is very good.

KOKANEE SALMON:POOR: There is little activity that is worth your time and effort. A pass here and there in channel areas is always on the menu but the fish might not be on the plate. You can usually pick up Trout in the process so it’s not a total loss. The ones caught are three year olds full of gill lice. We just call it like we see it and wish we could report better news here.

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR TO GOOD: Action picked up considerably all around the lake last Friday and Saturday in particular. They were even catching them in Fresh Water Cove in the Back Country. Many larger fish then we have seen all Summer getting aggressive and showing their teeth. Big Sticks like Husky Jerks and big Spoons like Daredevles were doing really good. Bill’s Spinner Baits in Black/Blue and Chartreuse/ White also did well. Although soft Swim Baits look awfully good when retrieved just right apparently not good enough for the Pike as they were the least performing bait on the menu for us. It is pretty typical to see Pike action pick up as we move into Fall. We really like October for big fish action. Serious Fishermen Team Pike Tournament sign up forms available at Marina, Valley Country Tackle and Sportsman’s Warehouse in Colorado Springs. Hope to have on line sign up today or tomorrow. Check the Contest link above or call 719-748-0317 and sign up over the phone anytime.*

*This contest is sanctioned by Colorado Parks and Wildlife and encourages the harvest of Northern Pike in an effort to keep a proper balance in the lake. These fish have no predators except themselves and if left unchecked they can decimate Trout populations. Come learn how to fillet this delicious fish at our cleaning demonstration done by the experts and then taste them for yourself.

*SMALL MOUTH BASS: You probably have a better chance of catching one of these than a Salmon right now. They don’t talk about it much but CPW dumped in about 10,000 of them well over 10 years ago. No one targets them so they have been unmolested for all this time. They have turned up here and there over the years by people catching them by chance. The above fish she caught in a targeted effort on a small rainbow pattern Dynamic. We have tried numerous Rapala’s and tube jigs over the years with lost opportunities but none landed. It’s all about getting serious and putting in some time. The one above looks to be three or four years old so they are reproducing. Plenty of food and plenty of rocks to hide in. Wouldn’t be surprised if a State Record is hiding out here. If you are interested try the rock wall along the East shore in East Bay to the Denver Water Boat Ramp. We also like all around Deer Island. Over the years we have seen them caught in the Back Country coves, Duck Island and near the Ranger boat house at North Shore.

Always work the bottom too no matter where you are. We have had good days on the #502 Gold Super Duper, Needlefish brass bikini and Kastmaster with anything gold on it. Tube jigs have been hit and miss but when they hit it’s been very good. Callibaetis hatch consistent every day at mid morning until about 1:00PM.

TROUT: GOOD: Action on smaller fish s still good. Look to troll for suspended fish holding 20 to 30 feet. Sometimes it gets a little slow so go through the box and find a pattern you aven’t tried of late and you might hit big. It’s a numbers game. Catch a bunch of little ones and pop the occasional Lunker or even Gunker. We had a good day on the #502 or #503 Gold Super Duper. It always does well at Spinney for us but on a recent trip it did really well here. Everyday is different that’s why we all have a tackle box full of stuff. Tas Devils continue to be a consistent lure but again color patterns can change daily. Shore anglers see best action early and late in the day. We have the baits! Power Bait, Fire Bait, Pautzke Salmon Eggs Mallows galore and more. Garlic seems to be always good but other flavors and colors pay off. Just ask Ryan Gumke.

KOKANEE SALMON:POOR: We can’t catch them of late. If you do chances are good they are full of Gill Lice. We sill see occasional floaters which is just flat out a bad sign.

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR: Fish being caught but it is certainly not gang busters. Work the rocks or the weed lines 25 feet of water or less. Husky Jerks, big spoons and other stick bait in addition to Trout patterned swim baits have done well. Bite times vary look to mid morning to early afternoon. Some bigger fish showing up. Serious Fishermen Team Pike Tournament sign up forms available at Marina this weekend. Hope to get it posted here asap. But it’s still a new website for us and we are having some technical difficulties.

FISHING REPORT PHOTO CONTEST: No current contest. Winner June July to be posted next week.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. All Park facilities are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp open Friday through Sunday. Great Summer weather continues with super nice mornings and frequent late afternoon showers. They generally don’t last long and bring always welcomed moisture. Weeds are an issue in some areas but not as bad as it has been in the past. They come on as the sun gets hire so early AM is best.

WATER FLOW:   IN 299  CFS    OUT: 231 CFS Water Temp 66

MARINA STORE AND LAKE SPECIALISTS: Camping, Fishing, Flies, Lures, Bait, Clothing, Food, Snacks, Drinks, Ice Cream and more.  Stop in and check out our offerings and get the latest fishing information.  We have a great store with great selection of what works.  Support the fishing report...

I guess we sell so many Eleven Mile Maps that Fish n Map CO ran out. Hope to get them next week.

LEAD CORE TROLLING RIGS catch more fish. Let us show you how. Combo’s fully rigged with lead line and leader ready to catch starting at $129.00.. Lead core with a Tas can’t be beat. Buy a rig this weekend get a free Tasmanian devil.

TROUT: GOOD: Although August is typically a bit of a slower month action is very good on the Cuttbows ranging from 13 to 15 inches for those in the know on the troll. Depth is critical as fish are suspended in deeper water from North Shore to points West. Fish also hitting East to the buoy line but the action is not as good. The single most consistent trolling spoon this Season. for us has been the #1 Humpy Special Needlefish on a down rigger. People tend to buy the bigger #2 but # 1 is better. Other consistent lures have been the Watermelon Kastmaster and many different patterns of Tasmanian Devils both 7 and 13 gram. Mid morning has been best. Bigger fish have been more elusive. Those on shore using bait have caught the bigger fish. Shore anglers doing well on Salmon Peach, Rainbow and Garlic Power Bait and the Eleven Mile Night Crawler Mallow Sandwich. Night bite is good at 10:00PM and 2:00AM

KOKANEE SALMON:POOR: Hide and seek or no hide no bite. If you find large schools you will be hard pressed to get them to bite. Straight out from North Shore between Goose and Duck Islands have been the best bet. As far a baits your guess is as good as ours. We have seen floaters around here and that is a bad sign. Gill Lice is taking its toll.

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR: Mark your calendar. SERIOUS FISHERMEN TEAM PIKE TOURNAMENT September 14. We have been extremely busy and working on the contest has been difficult. Will get it done and post entry forms ias soon as possible Fish are being caught but the big ones are hard to get to bite. You can see them some times but that doesn’t mean you can catch them. Work Howbert to Witchers or Cross Creek to Rocky Flats. We also like Corral Cove. Pitch the sticks and Bill’s Spinner Baits.

TROUT: GOOD: Dog days of Summer brings weeds. But usually wher the weeds are are fish. Those big weed beds are just dripping with food. Action mostly on Cuttbows running 14 to 15 inches. Those 15 inchers are now getting close to 16. Make sure you measure your catch. Trolling still remains effective although weeds are an issue on the West end in particular. Needlefish have been very productive in Brass Bikini, Nickel Bikini, FT and Pink. Tas devils just can’t miss if you choose the right pattern which can change from day to day. Y82 has done particularly well of late. And of course many other lures and patterns also produce so try your favorite. The one you have confidence in. That’s why we have tackle boxes.

KOKANEE SALMON:POOR: Bite has dropped off for most. Don’t confuse small Trout for salmon as some have done. We just have not been able to score of late. You can find them straight out from the Marina in 60 feet of water but you can’t get them to bite accept for one here and there no matter what you try.

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR: Fish being caught but it is certainly not gang busters. Work the rocks or the weed lines 25 feet of water or less. Husky Jerks, big spoons and other stick bait in addition to Trout patterned swim baits have done well. Bite times vary look to mid morning to early afternoon. For the most part mostly smaller fish and lots of work for them.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. All Park facilities are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp open Friday through Sunday. Periodic rain has kept things green. No fire bans and it’s been a long time since we have gone into Summer without one. Yeh! Smores all the way around.

POWER BAIT: New Flavor just came out. Find it at 11 Mile Marina almost exclusively. Only 10 jars left. Be the first one the shore with new Bumble Bee!

TROUT:VERY GOOD: Lots of great fish being caught. Many many Cuttbows in the 14 to 16 inch range. Spunky and chunky. Fish in the 18 to 21 inch very frequent for those trolling, pitching tubes or shore fishing. It helps to have a little experience but luck doesn’t hurt either. Trolling with Tas Devils, Needlefish and a host of other offerings have done well. Fish are suspended so Lead core or down rigger helps a great deal. Speed is important based on the lure you are using. Pop gear requires a slow speed, Tas Devils do better at a faster speed. Check the manufacturers websites for suggested speed for your favorite lure. It will make a difference. Fish in pic above was caught on a silver and black deep diver Rapala. Bite times vary but action can be had through out the day

KOKANEE SALMON:POOR: Bite has dropped off for most. Don’t confuse small Trout for salmon as some have done. We just have not been able to score of late.

Matthew Lee submits this weeks winner in a night of fun and frolic in the dark with Pink and White Power Bait.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. All Park facilities are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp open Friday through Sunday. Periodic rain has kept things green. No fire bans and it’s been a long time since we have gone into Summer without one. Yeh! Smores all the way around.

WATER FLOW:   IN 509  CFS    OUT: 615 CFS Water Temp 61

MARINA STORE AND LAKE SPECIALISTS: Camping, Fishing, Flies, Lures, Bait, Clothing, Food, Snacks, Drinks, Ice Cream and more.  Stop in and check out our offerings and get the latest fishing information.  We have a great store with great selection of what works.  Support the fishing report... Shop our store here at the lake. Stop in and find out how we can help you catch. Get a topo map. They say information is power. It's also critical to catching fish. The maps have GPS coordinates on them so you just can't miss. We want you to be successful here at the Mile. Get a map we will mark it up with the hot spots.

LEAD CORE TROLLING RIGS catch more fish. Let us show you how. Combo’s fully rigged with lead line and leader ready to catch starting at $129.00.

POWER BAIT: New Flavor just came out. Find it at 11 Mile Marina almost exclusively. Only 10 jars left. Be the first one the shore with new Bumble Bee!

FLIES: Not particularly a fly shop but did you know we stock almost 300 different patterns with those that do well in the area from the Canyon to the lake to Dream Stream and Spinney.


TROUT:VERY GOOD: Action continues to be strong day and night. Lots of anglers never see the lake in the day time and prefer angling at night. It is always fun and exciting to catch fish in the dark. Most are using bait, some use fly and a bubble. Fish in pic above caught on Power Bait. Boaters on the troll continue their winning run. Fly anglers hitting well on mid and late morning Callebeatis. Rivers are still very difficult if not impossible to fish. At 615 CFS the Canyon is a raging river. At 509 CFS the Dream Stream is full of debris. Early AM and mid morning are very productive but fish are being caught through out the day. Tas Devils and Needlefish always a favorite.

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR: No limits but action none the less. Silver and blue has been a good color combination this week. Look to North Shore Marina in deep water down 12 to 30 feet. Down rigger and or lead core always a benefit. Action also around Duck Island and a surprise fish every now and then off of Rocking Chair in 40 feet of water. Long line 13gram Tas Devils if you don’t have the downrigger or lead core. Or pop in a buy a lead core already rigged with lead line and leader. You can’t go wrong.

NORTHERN PIKE: GOOD: Fish caught are getting a little bigger. Lots of little ones too. Work the weed line along the overflow channel West of Stoll or the channel from Suckers Cove East to the wash out and then down to Lazy Boy. We still like Howbert to Witchers and coves in between. Deer Island hidden treasure for big fish but it takes work at rock drop offs. Big sticks, big tubes and Spinner Baits have done well. Mid morning to early afternoon.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

Oh and by the way there may not always be a  fish  pic.

TROUT:VERY EXCELLENT: It is more like late Spring than early Summer and the bite is on. Action is non stop from the boat. Shore action is good but takes a little more effort. Power Bait, any color with garlic. We also have garlic nightcrawlers that work well with a mallow. Trolling is non stop action. Many baits are working. Color patterns change with the time of the day.

“Family getaway to Elevenmile. With unpredictable winds we chose to shore fish. Stopped into 11 Mile Marina, after taking a look outside the girl behind the counter recommended PowerBait Chartreuse with glitter. Then she said “wait, can’t go wrong with the garlic”.
Started off on Friday June 21st just west of 11 Mile Marina. There’s a nice parking lot with a bathroom and picnic tables.
In the mix of helping with my families pole riggings, I was getting a nibble, I slowly started setting things down, trying to avoid jinxing the light tugs for wind and surf action. I reached for my pole which was properly secured by a rock and a water bottle for good angle.
I brought my pole up about waist height and slowly took the slack from the line and “bam”!! The game was on, I set the hook and watched that hog get air born! Almost 4’ from the surface he cleared the water before splashing in and making a run. I was shocked by the size and I immediately thought “is my line gonna hold? Should I loosen my drag? that’s a good idea!” After I was done overthinking the situation I brought him into shore. My wife and kids were screaming “oh my gosh” “wow” “Way to go, dad”!!
It was my weekend:)”

Although size matters many factors are evaluated.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. All Park facilities are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp only open Friday through Sunday. Water level rising dramatically. Afternoon rains have kept fire danger down. It’s feast or famine in Colorado and we may be out of drought but downstream areas may be in for flooding.

WATER FLOW:   IN 624  CFS    OUT: 455 CFS This is a lot of water. Lake has been rising to maximum levels.

WATER TEMP: 56

MARINA STORE AND LAKE SPECIALISTS: Camping, Fishing, Flies, Lures, Bait, Clothing, Food, Snacks, Drinks, Ice Cream and more.  Stop in and check out our offerings and get the latest fishing information.  We have a great store with great selection of what works.  Support the fishing report...

TROUT: EXCELLENT: The fishing is great and the bite even better. Lots of Cuttbows ranging 14 to 20 inches. Occasional Browns and Cutthroats have also been landed. Most methods are working from shore or boat. Boaters are having a grand time on the troll but you can drift and pitch and still do OK. Bite times vary through out the day. Early and mid morning is the best. Same baits are working with color pattern variations depending on time of day. Can’t go wrong with Pink. Chartreuse Dynamac by Arnies or the Arnies Reflecto in Green have caught some big fish. This is a great time to go through the tackle box and see which lure catches the biggest. Cowbells and pop gear for those that like that angle are best trolled super slow with a 3 foot leader tipped with crawler. Since the rivers are most difficult if not impossible to fish a fly rod from a boat is both successful and avoids the elbow to elbow crowd seen on the dream stream. Kalibeatis hatch coming on daily late morning. Work two flies on one rig. Gold bead nymphs are a favorite.

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR: There have been kokes showing up in shallow water. This is a bad sign of things to come. These fish are disoriented and dying from Gill Lice. We have seen it before. They are typically by themselves and are not biting. You can net them if you wanted. Meanwhile out in the deep action continues to be sporadic but you can still catch them if you are in the right place at the right time. The backside of Duck Island has been consistent but you need to be careful of the rocks. They seem to be holding right at the drop offs from the island. You can be in 60 feet of water and hit 30 just like that. Also work the channel from Duck through North Shore to Goose Island. Tas Devils, Macks’s Wedding Rings, Dick Nite’s, Needledish and Kastmasters have all caught fish. We have been tipping our hooks and that seems to help. Pautzke Fire Corn in Natural or Pink has performed well.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO GOOD: More fish being reported by more anglers. Although a few big ones have been tagged most are running 24 to 30 inches. Work the weed line along the overflow channel West of Stoll or the channel from Suckers Cove East to the wash out and then down to Lazy Boy. WE still like Howbert to Witchers and coves in between. Big sticks, big tubes and Spinner Baits have done well. Mid morning to early afternoon. Wind is your friend if you can handle it. Water gets murky fish get aggressive.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. All Park facilities are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp only open Friday through Sunday. Spring is still springing. Massive snow in the high country which evaporates when hit by the sunny mornings produces regular afternoon weather. Look for brief thunderstorms or showers almost everyday. The days start off super nice leading to brief weather events in the afternoon followed by super nice. Spring runoff is just now beginning and big water is on its way.

WATER FLOW:   IN 292  CFS    OUT: 126 CFS WATER TEMP: 54

TROUT: EXCELLENT: Water temp is just right. Boaters can’t keep up with the bite. If your trolling the right bait you are catching fish big time. If you are trolling the wrong bait you might still catch a fish. All the standard Eleven Mile baits are on fire. From Rapala right on down the line. Tas Devils hot! Kastmaster hot! Shore action is not as active but still good. Night fishing is happening all night long but especially at 2:00AM. Fly guys and gals are having a blast.

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR: Action is sporadic but fish have been being caught regularly. Pink is a favorite color. Needlefish, Tas Devils, Mack’s in a variety of patterns ie Wedding Ring and Hoochies. Depth vary from 10 to 35 feet in 50 and 60 feet of water. If you don’t see them on the locator just long line it instead of down rigger or lead core because when they are at 10 feet you won’t be seeing them on your electronics but they are around. Straight out from the Marina in deep water down to Ducl Island. Back side of Duck has been good. A few around Deer Island also but don’t go to far East. Bite times are variable with late morning and late afternoon a good bet.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO GOOD: Water temperature is just right.Action has improved significantly. Big fish on the prowl and biting. Spinner Baits in white or Chartreuse. Rapala, Husky Jerks and other sticks. Work the shallows from Cross Creek to Stoll or Howbert to Witchers. Early morning can surprise. Late morning to mid afternoon is best.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

Massive snow in the high country which evaporates when hit by the sunny mornings produces regular afternoon weather. Look for brief thunderstorms or showers almost everyday. The days start off super nice leading to brief weather events in the afternoon followed by super nice. Spring runoff has hardly begun. Spinney is probably about 80% full. Dream Stream flow still a dream except for the crowd. Annual hatch is late and still in play. Fish are packed to the gills with bugs. Fat and happy but still biting.

TROUT: GOOD: Shore action has been a little slow probably due to the massive amount of bugs available to eat. Boat action has been pretty good overall. Trolling spoons, Rapala’s, Cowbells and crawler all have caught fish. Deep trolling produces bigger fish. Down rigger a must if you want to skate the bottom in 40 to 60 feet of water. Pink has been a productive color as it usually is this time of year. Tas Devils are hot in many different patterns but the hottest is the pink and white Needlefish on a down rigger or lead core. We have lead core trolling rig combos spooled with 100 yards 36lb lead line and leader. Eagle Claw or Shimano starting at $129.95. Money back guarantee. You do what we tell you with the lure we suggest in the place we tell you to go and if you don’t catch a fish and you don’t do damage to the rig we will refund your money. That simple!

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR: Improving daily. No limits but plenty of opportunities. Bite times vary but 11:00AM to Noon has been good. Right before the nasty weather hits has also been a good time. If there is no lightning just wind and rain and you have a sufficient boat hang tight and catch some salmon. Mack’s Kokanee Killer, Wedding Rings, Pee Wee Wiggle Hoochie and Cha Cha Kokanee all have caught fish. Tas Devil #55 and pink and white Needlefish also are good. We have been tipping our hooks with a Gulp Maggot. Areas between Deer and Duck Island and out from North Shore are seeing most action. Fish are suspended and hanging between 20 and 35 feet.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR: For the most part it has been tough. Action has been decent from Howbert Point to Witchers Cove. Bill’s Spinner Baits in white or chartreuse as well as Rapala Husky Jerks or X-Raps have been productive. No really big fish yet most running 20 to 29 inches.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. The Holiday brought some respite from the cold and snow but wind held boaters at bay. Those anglers that went out did well overall.

TROUT: GOOD TO VERY GOOD: We can only imagine how things might be if conditions get nicer. The bite has been strong from shore and boat even though the water is still cold for this time of year and the wind hasn’t stopped blowing. Mostly Cuttbows and occasional Brown’s. Lots and lots of smaller fish in the 13 to 15 inch range with good numbers of bigger fish running 17 to 19 inches. Lunkers over 20 inches are being caught with more frequency. As Taj Mahal sings….”Many fish bite if you’ve got good…..here’s a little tip I would like to relate…..I’m a going fishin, I’m a going fishin…. and my baby’s going fishin too… Stop in for the latest report as things literally change by the day in Spring. If you can’t catch you are doing something wrong and we can help…. but Wal Mart probably can’t. Accurate information is like gold. The small price you pay for something that costs a little more at our store will turn a fishing trip into a successful one. We want and will help you catch fish. All of our staff fish this lake hard and know what’s hot and what’s not.

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR AND IMPROVING: Schools starting to show up and bite. The fish in top pic is notable both for the quality of the picture making a small fish look bigger and the fact that this young angler caught this nice Koke from shore. Casting into deeper water off the rocks at North Shore with a gold 1/4 OZ Kastmaster the fish hit as the lure dropped. He was quick to set the hook and was successful landing it. Trollers like in pic two are beginning to see success in deeper water in channel areas. Tas Devils, Needlefish, Kastmaster sometimes behind a Dodger or Cowbells working well. Look for schools on the locator and make circles around them if you can. Down rigger or lead core a must from boat but luck and persistence apparently can work from shore too. Go figure.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO IMPROVING: Action picking up on moderate size fish 26 to 30 inches. Howbert Point to points East all along the shore to Witchers Cove has been productive. Stoll Mountain to Rocky Flats in 12 feet of water or less has also seen action. Work the big sticks or big spoons. Can’t say enough about Kastmasters, they are on fire for all species so far this Spring.

So if its not there on Thursday morning it will show up by Friday. We appreciate all the support and acknowledge that many of you won't miss a week. Many Thanks.
