- Crappe mostly disappeared after the dam was rebuilt. DOW had chosen not to restock. There are still a few crappie, maybe in 30 years Elkhead will become what it used to be.

Elkhead Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- nice to know there are walleye in elkhesd reservoir!! My tip would be to release all walleye so that the population will expand to a population that can tolerate selective harvesting. So the state stocked them? they don\'t do much right but this is a good thing! While im at it...take all the state money you waste on killing pike, smallmouths and whatever else...fish as indigenous as; rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout and create a fishery that will create revenue for the state. the elimination of smallmouths on the lower Yampa, after it had become a world class destination fishery is an example of the ineptitude and ignorance of the people in charge of our resources. The fact that no one can acknowledge that humans are at the top of the food chain, reveals the very ignorance that is behind the decisions being made.It is easier to drink coffee at the local diner than it is to make a decision that may or may not be controversial.Job security is more important than making decisions that may actually benefit humans and wildlife alike. So keep those walleye spawning!1

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
