Colorado Stream Update: Spring is a great time to take a break from the rivers and hit some still water or warm water! Now is a great time for spring bass fishing on a boat with some beers!

Current Conditions at Quincy Reservoir:

Look for fishing to really start picking up at Quincy Reservoir. Now is a good time for pond prowling with your favorite crank bait or stripping a fly like a Clouser Minnow in hopes of hooking up with a lunker. Get out and fish!

Working streamers has been very productive! Try using a big fly like a Sex Dungeon or Sculpzilla trailed by a Kolanda Mini Sculpin or Belly Ache Minnow. Try fishing a white streamer. Try fishing a darker black or olive streamer.  The fishing is good.  Partly Cloudy skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 36-39 degrees and Slightly Off.
