Grand Lake

Grand Lake continues to fish great. The run-off has slowed and the water is clearing up. Water temperatures have been in the mid to upper 50s during the middle of the day. Low light periods continue to be key times of the day, particularly for the Rainbows and Browns. Fishing aggressively with reaction type baits has been working well. Lake trout are found deeper and deeper everyday as the water warms. Keys to finding them has been using electronics and changing up offerings until finding the bait of the day. Each day it is something different they are wanting. Waters will be busy this weekend.

WIlliams Fork

Surface temperature at 6 a.m. is around 62 degrees. Lake Trout are moving deeper. I saw a fish on the screen from 70 to 120 feet. Fishing is good with the proper presentation. Small jigs tipped with meat are catching 15-18” lakers. Pike are slow. They are still in the shallows mid-day. They are following but not hitting. Salmon are slow.

Lake Granby

Water temperatures are 64-68 degrees. Rainbows are being caught early and late along the shorelines with power bait. A few Browns are still being caught casting the rocky shorelines early and late in the day. Lake Trout are being caught all around the lake in depths of 50’ and greater. Small jigs tipped with “Gulp” or sucker meat are getting limits of fish.
