One word: PIKE! I love Sanchez Reservoir for one reason, phenomenal Northern Pike Fishing. Located in the south east corner of the San Luis Valley, almost on the New Mexico border, Sanchez days are spent wearing out crankbaits and spinnerbaits along rocky shorelines and weed-beds looking for massive toothy critters! 15-30 fish days are not uncommon. We even run into an occasional Walleye!
Please note: due to high mercury levels, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife recomends releasing all fish in Sanchez Reservoir.
NOTICE: Due to low water levels we were not able to even launch our boat in 2014. Ask about pike on Spinney or Taylor as an alternative!
