trout fishing in unit 62

I hate to say this because I could be totally wrong, but I have hunted unit 62 for about the last 10 years and have yet to see a trout in any of the streams or watering holes I have come across. I may just not remember it if I did. It is possible on some of the private land. Now in Grand Junction there is a state park area with a small lake and fishing is supposed to be phenominal. Hope this helps out a little bit. Bye the way maybe see you there, I will also be there the 18th for muledeer.

I don't know about your unit. But I always take a fly rod with me. It's a great diversion mid day.

Trout Fishing while Elk Hunting- GMU 62


I am heading out to unit 62 for the second season deer hunt next week. While you were out there, did you see any deer worth talking about? I am not looking for a monster, just a decent 24-26" buck. If you could give me some ideas on where to start looking I would appreciate it. I just bought a landowner tag and won't be able to do any scouting to do how quick the hunt is.

Thanks in advance.
