So Colorado issued a fishing license with my elk tag this year. Going to be backpacking into the flat top wilderness area for 5 days to hunt first rifle season. Does anybody ever try to catch fish to supplement the food they have to carry? Good/Bad idea? What type of gear and bait do you use? Do you have to wrastle the bears to keep your catch? And if so how big are the bears?

Just kidding. Any advice on what to use or if this is even a good idea would be appreciated.
