Our favorite trout stillwaters are open and producing. Spring is one of the best times to target trophy trout in stillwaters, so get out there while it's good. Warm water lakes and ponds are also starting to produce. Carp are moving up shallow and beginning their spawning rituals, bass are still holding in deeper water, but are beginning to feed actively as their spawn approaches.
Laramie plains lakes have opened up and are fishing well. Leeches, Chrionomids, Scuds, and small streamers have been the most productive offerings as of late.
Delaney Buttes are kicking out some very nice fish so far this spring. Similar patterns to the plains lakes apply. Night time fishing with large streamers and buggers has been the ticket for finding the real hogs.
Red Feather lakes are open, but the water temps are still quite chilly. Expect fishing to continue to improve with the nice weather we've been getting. Buggers, chironomids, and streamers have been the go-to patterns in Red Feather.
Horsetooth reservoir is open, be aware that the inlet closes in the Spring for spawing fish.
Spring time conditions can change quickly so feel free to stop by the shops and get the latest scoop and hot flies!
