The fishing rundown on the ‘W’ lakes

Willow Creek, Wolford and the North Park lakes are fishing well for rainbows. In the shallower North Park lakes, the fish are starting to move out into the basin. Look for a few about 6 feet below the ice in deep water. Heavy Tungsten Jigs made by Clam worked well last week. The Kokanee at Wolford are in the river channel; a few are being caught on spoons tipped with wax worms. Lake trout at Williams Fork, Green Mountain and Granby are biting very well on soft plastics tipped with a small piece of sucker meat.
