    Default june 2014 blue mesa

    1st day out on blue mesa and fishing was tough. we did not boat any kokanee, but did get 2 decant rainbows. we did have one koke get off, but that was the only one that tried to help out. the lake is way up from last year. i think the ranger said it is only 15' low right now. water is still flowing in at a good rate. the water temp was 56 and a little off color over most of where we went.

    Looks like a brown trout from the picture. With the off colored water, try running flashers (cowbells, etc) off of your downrigger ball and a short set back (6 - 15 feet) behind that. I've been catching fish with a 10 foot set back in only 6 - 14 feet of water and can often see kokes following the flashers on the depthfinder.
