    Hey there, I'm a new member from Northern Colorado. I fish mainly in Loveland, Berthoud and Longmont for cats but I like to hit places around the state every once in a while. I have a cast net and catch my own bait but can't seem to get more than 5-10 on a cast. I've heard good things about the Big Thompson Ponds and I was wondering what pond is the best to fish/ catch bait at and what time do the shad normally run there?
    Basically I like to fish for Catfish, Carp and Pike but I fish for all other species too. My cat rigs are a 7ft ugly stik cat rod spooled with 20 lb cajun. My other rod is a 7ft MH ugly stik custom spooled with 50 lb suffix braid. Both sport BPS catmaxx spinning reels. Then i use a 24 inch mono 30-50lb leader with a large swivel, bead and 3 0z no roll sinker.
    I fish many bodys of water like: Lake Loveland, Lon Hagler, Lonetree. N. Sterling Res, Jayhawker, Boyd lake, Stearns lake (bad do to over-fishing) and several others. Thanks guys and I hope to be an active member on the forum.

    Jake, Welcome to the BOC/SOC:cool2:. Don't know anything about your area, maybe someone will be along that can help. Be sure to check out the library, a lot of good info in there. Also check out the River and lake threads for your state, you might pick up some info there also.

    Thanks alot guys, I really appreciate it. There is one thing that I don't understand. If this website is catfish1 why is it the brotherhood of catfisherman? I know there is a different BOC website. :confused2:
    What is the difference? I'm so confused.:big_smile::big_smile::embarassed:

    Welcome Jake to the best catfishing site in the world.
    I used to live in Longmont and I've fished all over up there but as far as I know Big Thompson ponds don't have any catfish in it. Not many places up there have catfish unless it was stocked. The State Park at I-25 has some cats in it but not anything real big. The only other place close to there that I know is my grandfathers ponds in the foothills of Boulder and he has it stocked with channel cats. If you want to catch some nice rainbows, go to Estes Park. If you go up that way go through Lyons and stop by the giant cowboy and feed the giant rainbows there. I have another thread that is in the Colorado talk forum with pics of the giant trout.
