Middle Park fishing report for 10-1-2017


The boat ramp hours are 7AM to7PM at Williams Fork. Surface temp has dropped to 55 in the morning warming to upper 50's in the afternoon. Temps in deep water are still warm. This week's Lake Trout bite has been fair to good. Vertical jigging off of the bottom in 90 to 135 foot water with Berkley grubs or metal jigs tipped with sucker meat is producing some fish. Bite is best early AM to mid AM. Shore fishing has been slow but big Rainbows are cruising the  shoreline. Kokanee are grouping up for spawn. Trolling for Kokanee is slow, as is Pike fishing. Large Northern Pike are moving into shallower water. Slow moving suspending  jerk baits may produce some hits.  Randy Hall - Guide, Fishing with

Grand Lake is fishing very good for rainbows along the East inlet and Adams Tunnel. Powerbait and small spoons are working well. Lake trout are starting their spawn, small jigs with sucker meat will catch good numbers of fish. 

Lake Granby is fishing very well for rainbows around the inlets and the backs of coves.Jigs tipped with wax worms, small spoons are working very well. There are a few kokanee around the shorelines, try dike 3, and Arapahoe Creek inlet. Spoons and pink jigs are working very well for these fish. Lake trout will be moving shallow very shortly, small jigs tipped with sucker meat, "Gulp"minnows, and Plain jane spoons will all catch fish. Please remember that the Kokanee closure is in effect in Columbine Bay at Twin Creek inlet to Shadow Mountain dam.
