Elk hunt pack rod???

9 posts in this topic

Planning an elk hunt for this fall and the area we are going in Colorado has some excellent trout water...Thinking of bringing a pack rod with to chase a few trout too. Any recommendations for break down style rods?

I bring one of my flyrods just on the off-chance I get an elk early (which has never happened grin.gif). We hunt near a lake with trout in it, but I've always been focused on the hunt and never thought of taking a mid-afternoon break.

I have an old Spiderwire 4 piece rod in a little travel bag that would work. You may be able to find one on the "auction" site for cheap. Or shoot me an email and I can send you the one I have and you can take a look at it.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
