Just moved back from being in Colorado for the last 10 years and I don't have a boat yet. Looking to do some Walleye fishing and I have heard that rivers are a good bet. Does anyone have any areas within a 2 hour drive that I should check out. Thanks in advance for your replies.
Oh, yah...the river's the ticket for big walleyes, especially Pool 2. Of course, it's all catch and release, but there are monsters in Pool 2. My biggest was just over 28", and caught in about 2 feet of water near the shoreline, fishing with a jig and minnow.
Go once with The Griz, and you'll learn all the secrets of fishing Pool 2 for walleyes. Guaranteed.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
