Conditions : Blue Mesa Reservoir - As of 2/26/2021, anglers reported 10-16 inches of ice at Dry Creek and inlet. Bay of Chickens had 14-18 inches of ice, 25+ inches in Lola basin, 12 inches at Cebola Creek and 18 inches at Willow Creek. Caution is advised as ice is highly variable in some areas. Conditions contributor Andrew Morlang reports, “The fishing at Blue Mesa reservoir has been consistently hot for browns and rainbows along rocky shorelines in 5-20 feet of water. Fish are hitting jigs and tubes tipped with worms in water as shallow as 5 feet. Other popular baits include Kastmasters, Swedish Pimples, and Krocodile spoons. We have also had success using trout magnets tipped with mealworms. The bite has been good all day, but we have noticed increased fish activity in the early morning and evening hours. If you have the opportunity to fish into the night, the bite for bigger brown trout seems to pick up after dark. We landed multiple browns over 18” past 10:00. Fishing after dark with larger spoons tipped with sucker meat seems to do the trick. Make sure to keep a consistent jigging motion so that the fish are able to pick up the spoon in the dark.”
