BLUE MESA

Ice under the bridge..woo hoo. Trout, perch, even a sucker was seen exiting the ice last weekend.

Cold...but 6 inches of ice. Wierd looking ice too. Has bubbles all through it.

This cold snap should extend the ice to the east but it may be too cold to fish without a shelter.

I guess it is pretty good if you can find them. They should be in the far eastern end of the lake. Probably east of the bridge.

went up on saturday. lots of stockers. kept 4 fish. 1 big bow. 1 16" brown and two of those blue mesa browns. kinda silvery like a bow but spotted like a brown? I assume some sort of local hybrid? anyone know much on this fish?

if you are going. beware of the wind!!! I had my small shanty ( eskimo 2 ) bolted down and it broke one spike and ripped the others out of the ice and sent my shanty doing about 25 up stream. Thank goodness a guy up stream of me caught it flying by. then his double shanty ripped the black corners off all four corners and wadded it up against the canyon wall.

side note. got to meet robby from icefishcolorado.com - what a super nice guy. He was guiding a group up stream from my spot.

I'm not sure if that was written to crack us up or not but I'm grinning ear to ear. Sounds like a heck of a day. Glad someone was there to save your eskimo from joining theirs against the canyon wall. Never seen one of those silvery looking browns but only fished there once. Wish posting pictures was only as difficult as it used to be. May up the database for the site soon and add some room for photos.

Ive heard two options amongst the guys I fish with. Some are saying they are just female browns...others are calling them a "blue mesa brown"

still researching...

does it look like a "Toilet Bowl" brown? Light colored browns sorta pale looking but yet with a "pinkish" hue....LOL

I figured those browns were rich on mysis

I have seen the silver browns in Blue and in Flaming Gorge. Some people think they are the lock laven strain, but I'm skeptical. Probably just a small varietal difference. Maybe be due to diet.
