Fishing Report

Area lakes are fishing great. The lakers in all our lakes have started to move a little deeper, but they will eat. Havoc tubes with a small piece of sucker meat have been working very well lately.

Browns and rainbows are still cruising the shallows and will hit a variety of crank baits and jigs. The key seems to be fish early, late or in the wind.

Some of the rivers in the area are clearing up and the fish are responding very well to flies and lures fished close to structure.

Grand Lake is producing some large lake trout as well as browns along the shorelines. Pike in Williams Fork are hitting in the afternoon, try baits that move VERY slow and fish where ever the wind is blowing into a shallow area. Kokanee at Wolford are very shallow, they might be 2-5 feet deep over 80 feet of water. Assorted spoons are working very well. Rainbows are cruising the shorelines, small tubes and spoons are a great bet. Char, browns and Rainbows are cruising the banks at Dillon reservoir.
