Fall Fishing

Last 2 weeks of September till ice up

The last 2 weeks of September bring the salmon to the river mouths, we generally
have about 2 hours to cast light lures to schools of fish playing on the surface. October bring the lake trout shallow again and we target 15-22” lake trout. We can either jig or cast, the jigging does get more bites but casting can keep you catching plenty of fish. During the month of October we have caught and released over 100 fish a day. 20-30 fish days are very possible.

Have you ever used flourocarbon and had it spring off the reel and cause a big mess? The first way to avoid the problem is to make sure not to over fill the spool. When I do over fill, here is how I control it.

Spring fishing, summer fishing, guided fishing trips on lake granby, Lake Granby, Lake trout

  As a fishing guide I get to fish more then anyone I know. On hot bites I get to net a lot of fish, slap high fives and listen to people giggle with excitement when they get a big fish on.


 I generally get my Crestliner ready in April for ice off in May.

Early Fall Trout--Opportunities abound for fast autumn action

Fall offers ample options afield. Across the spectrum of hunting, fishing and other outdoor pursuits, autumn is truly a time of plenty. And one of the more overlooked opportunities involves the early fall trout bite.

Working with fluctuating reservoirs

Up thirty feet and down eighty feet in the same year?  If your reservoir regularly changes depth to manage water supplies or due to drought the daily, monthly, or yearly change in depth affects your fishing success.  Or simply plays with your mind and tests your ability to find the fish every day.

Lake Granby Water Cycles Explained

It will be fun this year seeing Dike 3 recede back into the depths.  It rises like a beached submarine every four to six years only to dive back a couple of years later.  I started guiding about 20 years ago and I have seen it all.  High water, low water, and everything in-between.

Casting for Kokanee

Casting for Kokanee


The five mile run across Lake Granby from the Stillwater boat ramp up into Columbine bay takes your breath away.  The steep walls of the pseudo-fjord dive deep into the water.  Moose and Elk occasionally swim the channel.

Things that go "thump in the night"

Every fall as the nights get cooler, I relish the thought of putting on my waders and casting floating stickbaits like the Sebile "Koolie Minnow"around the inlets of my favorite reservoirs. While Brown Trout are spawning they will still hit a stickbait presented over their heads.

Time for Kokanee and Rainbow on Lake Granby

September through October, Lake Granby still brings some great "bites". The water temperature is still warm which means that the big fish are still biting and are found in deeper water. During the second part of September the Kokanee start to spawn and they put up a great fight!
