Lakes & Reservoirs

Water Temperature  

Conditions : Trinidad Reservoir - As of 10/12/2018, the Lake is at 696 surface acres with a surface elevation of 6181.31. Surface water temperatures are around 57 degrees. The fishing report is basically the same as last week with the exception of colder water which is having a positive impact on the fishing. Shore fishermen are catching trout on homemade dough bait, PowerBait in the green color and worms all along the south shore, which has been decent with all species of fish. The river at Reilly Canyon has slowed down to a trickle and heavy willows/vegetation has emerged around the lake. The most action for fish is occurring in the early mornings and late evenings. Boaters have done well targeting walleye really early in the morning hours. Smallmouth are being caught early in the morning and late afternoon. Trout are being landed during all hours. Worm harnesses and crank baits have worked well. Fish are being found around 10-15 feet of water. Look for fish to be more active with the fall conditions especially the colder water species.
