This Middle Park fishing report is brought to you by “Fishing with Bernie”. The wind and sun has packed down the snow and the most of the slush has froze. We are starting to see spring ice conditions and it should only get better. Lakers have been eating small jigs tipped with sucker meat. The lakers have started suspending around the deeper water, 3-4” power minnows and other type minnow baits seem to work well. Rainbows and browns have been in water less then 20’ deep. The best bite is early mornings or cloudy days for shallow water fish. The pump canal and interconnecting channel is fishing good with small jigs or flies under a bobber. Shadow Mountain spillway is fishing well for brown trout with jerk baits worked very slow on sunny afternoons.

Bernie Keefe has been a fishing guide in the area for over 20 years. For more info please check out http://www.fishingwithbernie.com or Facebook Fishing with Bernie
