Our network has spent years fishing on Blue Mesa, Rifle Gap, Harvey Gap and other lakes and we are happy to share the info with you. We hope you too can learn how to catch more fish consistently, on your schedule and on your budget. Our network can really be a great Guide so your time spent fishing these lakes can include less bad days and include more good days. Our best tip for new ice fishing anglers is to spend 3 days ice fishing at a time on the lake you wish to fish in Colorado and document your results. The first day is the search and experiment day. The second day lets you apply different methods to some productive spots you may have discovered. The third day is to solidify any pattern that may have become consistent to where you found fish, and what baits they responded to. Do this as many times as you can and record seasonal ice fishing trends and use them to produce optimum ice fishing windows and allow you to know where to fish.
Most anglers don’t have the luxury of this three day fishing window and would like result in a day. For many lakes you can fish productively where you caught fish in the early spring. The water temps are similar and the forage may be in the same area as well. Now some lakes just have classic spot that you see fisherman every time you go to the lake. This tells a lot and you can conclude that there are fish near and around that spot. Look at those spots on a map and try to find similar spots with the same make up at other parts of the lake. There are fish in many parts of the lake and when you can find your own bite- keep it quiet! In 2013, we will also offer some of our hottest spots to anglers. Please keep posted to our site and look for this update.
