Spinney Reservoir Fishing Great!

One of My Best Trout Fishing Days by Tim Romano

OK, I have to gloat, just a little…

I spent a good chunk of the day yesterday on Spinney Mountain Reservoir with my friend John Perizzolo. John guides for Breckenridge Outfitters and is the inventor of a tungsten putty product called Mojo Mud.

While I'm not much of a big lake angler — as it intimidates me to some extent — I do believe the action yesterday might have changed my mind.

It was a fish-catching bonanza! One of the best trout fishing days I've had in a while. I'm not exaggerating when I say this: For a couple hours, almost every cast connected with an 18- to 20-inch rainbow that jumped multiple times and took me into my backing. We also lost a couple of fish that had to be pushing 24 to 25 inches...

Typically, I really like to tell the whole story, and get the flavor of the situation, location, etc. Yesterday was different. It was all about the fish, and LOTS of them. Heck, I barely shot that many photos, and half the ones I took were blurred from my excitement on the way to put down the camera and pick up the rod again.

What about you? Have you ever had a day like this while fishing on a big lake for big trout? It's got me thinking about fish finders, trolling motors and waypoints for sure.


Enjoy the images.
