Middle Park area fishing report 3-22-2018


Here his your middle park fishing report for the week of March 22nd. Spring conditions are upon us, be aware of the ice your on. Look for soft spots and open water. 

Grand Lake - ice is holding up but definitely shows signs of spring conditions.   Rainbows are biting well In front of the town docks on various small jigs and spoons tipped with meal worms or eggs.   The suspended lake trout bite over 70-100' of water has been most consistent for lake trout,  but you'll have to be mobile find them, tube jigs tipped with sucker will coax them to bite.   Dan Shannon, Guide - Fishing with Bernie 

Williams Fork-The ice is still holding up for now at 12-18” but it’s starting to get softer and there are some dark spots forming along the edges. Use caution if you go out in the next week. The lake got a few inches of fresh snow this week. The action for lakers has been good in 40-80 feet of water with many fish suspended higher up in the water column. The usual tube jigs tipped with sucker meat have been productive. Rainbows are starting to group up in the bays in less than 10 feet of water. A few pike are also being found in the bays in shallow water.
Lake Granby- Rainbow fishing is great in the mornings. Small jigs tipped with wax worms in 4-10' of water seems to work very well. There are still a few kokanee being caught, bright colored flutter spoons fished 20 feet deep over deeper water caught a few last week. Lake trout are being caught all around the lake. Twister tails, power minnows and tubes are catching fish.
