My husband and I like to go fishing but for the last 3 or 4 years we hardly catch any thing. I my use worms to fish. I hope you can give me ideals on how to catch more fish. Thank you for your time. Penny Goodson

help! I have searched and searched for a Colorado record for the cutthroat trout. While fishing in the late spring of 1997 near Glenwood I watched a guy land a huge cutthroat trout. It measured nearly 38 inches long and bet it weighed at least 35-40 pounds. This was right at the mouth of a tributary emptying into the Colorado River. I know the guy lived in Grand Junction and was a teacher or something for troubled kids. When I tell others about it they roll their eyes and scoff. Well, I know it is true and hope someone, friend, neighbor or taxidermist could help me find the guy or a picture of the fish! I need to end this misbelief.
