With an epic winter slowly concluding, most anglers in Colorado are starting to speculate what runoff will be like over the next couple of months. While my crystal ball is in the shop for repairs, I thought the next best thing to offer all of our customers is a weekly (or more frequent if conditions require) update on how our spring melt is progressing. Hopefully this information will be invaluable for our customers as they plan their weekly fishing excursions.
This Weeks Overview
Following a wintery weekend in the high country, our state wide snow pack increased noticeably over the weekend. This was welcome news for the Southern Rockies, as their annual snow pack has lagged compared to years past with annual totals below 100%. The Central and Northern mountains added more precipitation to their already historic snow pack, creating further concern as to the possible runoff we could see once things start to warm up.
Took the day off from work and headed to a local Bass pond. Haven't had my pontoon boat out in a while, so I was eager to get on the water.
The Bass pond, definitely not the most scenic spot to fish, but I guess it's what's underneath that counts.
Didn't take long for to bring in the first fish of the day. Wasn't anything to write home about, but I'll take it.
