Lower Colorado, Feburary 17, 2013
JD and I hit the Colorado yesterday. We ran a few miles up river from Smithville and after the first sand bar we had the river to ourselves, as usual, on the Lower Colorado. The wind made it difficult but we managed to boat 15-20 fish in a few hours, with a handful of nice ones. LOW AND SLOW was the key yesterday. I used a 6wt with 150 grains sinker with a few different streamers having the most success with a Belly Dancer (no clue, it’s a Montana thing) but I liked it. The fish were where they should have been. I missed some nice opportunities and we both had some good thumps, a little wintertime rust I think. We were down to t-shirts and flip-flops by early afternoon and it’s only going to get better… Spring is near.
