Fishing season is not over yet!
Taking advantage of the seasons
Our tip of the week relates to the seasonal changes not only in weather but angler’s priorities and how you can take advantage of possibly the best fishing of the year. This week’s tip comes again from Local Denver guide Austin Parr, “With big game season upon us, many anglers hang up their fishing equipment in exchange for a pair of boots, and a bow or rifle, leaving many popular fisheries void of the summertime crowds. With less fishing pressure and cooler temperatures, reservoirs such as Spinney Mountain, Antero, and Stagecoach have action that is just heating up. Look for receding weed edges in lakes such as these. Big trout will use weeds as a structure point, meandering along them in search for food. Try casting spoons such as Tasmanian Devils or Krocodiles and work them quickly along these weed edges. Boat anglers can also have success trolling with these lures behind a planer board along the same weed edges. Tube Jigs are another highly effective technique in these crawfish rich lakes. Try casting a 2.5 inch brown tube paired with a 1/8 ounce jig head along these weeds or points, using a snap jig approach.” – Austin Parr with Discount Fishing Tackle, Denver.
