We did some test fishing on April 27. The results convinced us that the fish are ready for a fight on opening day May 1.
2 anglers fished from 11:30 to 4 pm. They landed 30 Trout fishing primarily pink San Juan Worms and egg patterns.
They caught Rainbows, Brown, Brooks, Tigers and a Palomino.
Fish were on the bottom in the deeper water. Most strikes were subtle but some were really aggressive smashes.
The water was off colored, all snow melt, and cold.
I expect anglers will be landing some some large Browns and Tigers this month…big enough for bragging rights.
