Rocky shoreline on windy day good spot for trout

While a young amorous bull moose in Grand Lake was introducing himself to a statue, the fish didn’t notice. The rainbows in Willow Creek and Grand Lake continue to eat bait and lures early and late in the day. The brown trout in Grand Lake and Granby are still eating lures cast around rocky shorelines, that bite is very good early, late and in the wind. Colorado Parks and Wildlife stocked 1.5 million Kokanee last week, but they were about an inch long, don’t get your hopes up this summer. They will be catchable in a couple years. The lakers in Granby and Grand lake are moving deeper each day; sonar units help find those fish and a jig with a small piece of sucker meat is working very well.
