Fishing Spot of the Week: Recapture Reservoir

Fishing Spot of the Week: Recapture Reservoir

Published Jul 11, 2011 11:18AM MDT

Where • Recapture Reservoir, San Juan County
Species • Northern pike, largemouth bass, bluegill
The skinny • If you are looking for a good place to catch pike and bass from the shore, Recapture may be your spot. Northern pike from Recapture helped get the state’s tiger muskie program started. Anglers may consider lures imitating goldfish. Illegally introduced goldfish likely provide an easy and, apparently, abundant target for all game fish.
