Re: Fishing in February?
Nate: The San Juan river in NM should fish well in February, but it is pretty isolated, not much to do there other than fishing. I know you said no further east than Colorado, but February would be a great month to target Redfish in Louisiana. Here in the Rockies you will pretty much be limited to tailwater fishing and there are many to choose from: Frying Pan, Big Horn, Flaming Gorge, to name just a few, but you will most likely need to be prepared for COLD fishing. However, the Frying Pan also gives you the option of combining skiing with some fishing. Pyramid lake, NV might also be a possible, I have never fished there, so maybe some of the others can chime in on that idea.
