Colorado Stream Update: Bass on poppers! That is all you need to know.

Current Conditions at Quincy Reservoir:

Started out with the go-to black wooly bugger and picked up a few crappie, but nothing crazy. As evening set in, thought a popper would be fun to watch at the very least. With well place casts, bass were hammering the red foam popper. This is a great option here and many other pond locations along the Front Range.

The fishing is great.  Clear skies and 60+ degree weather. The water temperature was between 60+ degrees and Slightly Off.
