COLORADO: Fair Success on Trout Trolling with Crawlers

Aurora Reservoir (City of Aurora)

Water temp is 60 degrees. Trout fishing from shore is slow to fair. Best success has been from the East and West end of the Dam using PowerBait and crawlers from a slip rig. Boaters are reporting slow to fair success on trout trolling with crawlers. Walleye action is fair using jigs, spoons and bottom bouncers. Most are not of legal size to possess. Perch action is fair to good using jigs and worms. We should start to see the fishing improve this month. The fall can be some of the best fishing of the year! Olive leech patterns and brown and olive wooly buggers are great fall fly patterns. Boats are restricted to electric motors only. Fall hours of operation in October are 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and November 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information please call 303-690-1286. Please Note: A watercraft access pass is required to launch any watercraft and must be inspected prior to launching. Reservoir will close to boating Dec. 1 for the season.
