Lake trout

Blue Mesa Lake Trout

Trophy lake trout season has been good to GSO so far. Not gonna say it’s been easy, but finding a way to produce fish for clients on most trips!! With low water levels we’re finding some fish in new spots and been trying lots of new lures and tactics to induce a strikes> its been fun re-learning the lake at this water level. The bad news for good fishing this season is that many of the old trophy sized fish are being harvested by some anglers daily. It’s so sad to see people have no consideration for the fishery that they love so much. It’s so sad to see these old fish end up on stringer. I heard of one boat keeping 17 mackinaw one day,  half of which were old big fish and another that had 5 over 3olbs one day! sad sad sad, very ignorant and very disrespectful to an amazing fish that takes so long to grow that big! Please consider this lake trout  fishery for the future generations of anglers that will want to catch these fish and not just here the stories from you about how many 30lb’ers you threw on the grill years ago!
