When it comes to the stocking of Rainbow Trout in Colorado rivers keep this in mind. They spawn all the time, spring, winter, fall, and summer. Let this be my first gripe with the stocking programs of Colorado. While many people enjoy their 8” rainbow’s in Clear Creek I find them repulsive. Nothing is more ugly than a hatchery raised, pellet fed, square faced Rainbow.
Oh…here is a spawner from this weekend.
