Ice fishing is good on Blue Mesa!

lue Mesa Reservoir near Gunnison, Colorado has been fishing very good most days for brown trout, rainbow trout, lake trout, and yellow perch! There is safe ice from the Gunnison River inlet westward to a little ways past Elk Creek Boat ramp. The ice is 7-12″ thick and has about 3 to 6 inches of snow on top of it. Most of the hot action has been around the lake city bridge in 15-25 feet of water. Small ice jigs, plastics, and spoons in white, chartruese, brown, and green and tipped with a wax worm, meal worm, or earth worm have been consistent producers! Action for lake trout in the 16-22″ range has also been very good on a 2 to 3.5″ white or glow tube jig tipped with sucker meat. Focus on depths of 45-65 feet and work your jig within three feet of the bottom.
