Anything that works like a Shad will do the trick. Here is a general idea.

Look for the "boil" on the reservoir. Sometimes you can fish these from shore with a Fly Rod. Certain reservoirs at certain times of the year, are like "nuts" with Wipers hitting Shad from the shore to much further out.

Is a 7wt saltwater rod stout enough for the Wipers in CO? Picked up a Scott X2S 7wt, and read it has a good strong butt, and none of the wipers I would be fishing for would be in moving waters.

Thanks. Never done it before.

Try a chartreuse size 2-6 clouser minnow. I've caught more wipers and white bass on that than anything.
