Animas Lunch Report – 5/20/15 – The Colorado Bonefish
You may have noticed that this time of year, a lot of the Duranglers squad seeks out alternate fly fishing options. Most of us are exhausting our energies and spending our free days seeking out the violent pike. Bass is also an option, although it is a little early for smallies or the explosive bucketmouth. With the season of mud fully upon us, creativity is key. If trout is your quarry, you are going to have to find a tailwater, lake, or some kind of secret high country creek.
Carp, on the other hand, often go overlooked.
The Colorado Bonefish as Carp have been called, lives a weird life…by other gamefish standards at least. Stagnant ponds, golf course water obstacles, backwater eddies, and the random lake; carp can live most anywhere. They can and will eat pretty much anything edible…but they are extremely difficult to hook. And if you DO hook a carp, they will fight harder than most any other freshwater fish you have had on your line.
So with runoff in full swing…a very select few of us weird ones will be perusing Colorado Bones.
Kyle – It’s a good time to go practice with your snorkel gear on the Animas.
Andy – The Animas hit 2100 cfs, time to get out the rafts.
