Quillback, Silver & Gold

This time of year the local carpsuckers swim up the smaller warmwater tribs for spawning. They don't hang out there for too long. I keep them on my calendar. I'll go back in a couple weeks and they could all be done and gone -- back to the big muddy river. 


  1. As far as I know we don't have those in CO at all. Kinda bums me out, they seem like really cool fly targets. Very pretty.

  2. Sweet fish. Wendy and I catch them in the spring in mn. Fun to catch!

  3. Really some rough looking fins there--might be a fight on the fly
