Ice Fishing

Christmas through the middle of April

Generally around Christmas the lake freezes over enough to carefully go out and fish. Safety is first and foremost. We can target rainbows, browns, kokanee and lake trout. The time of day we fish depends on the species we are fishing for. When ice fishing it is important that we are comfortable. We do supply heaters, tents, snowmobiles and all the other gear to keep you comfortable. We can target trophy fish (over 30” or try to catch a limit. Catch big fish ice fishing “may drill over 100 holes) or just pick the “sweet spots” and work a little less, our trophy methods depend on what the fish are doing and how hard the group is willing to work.

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.

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.

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.

The ice on Granby is still over 20" thick, but spring is here. The creeks are running water under and over the ice and the banks are starting to thaw so please be careful. The fishing is still pretty good.

Thanks for Serving!

Everyday a hometown young man or woman makes a decision to become the most valuable patriot assets of America, volunteering to join the United States Armed Forces. For what ever their individual reasons they felt compelled.

On January 19, I took a group of men from Wounded Warriors.

Early Ice Conditions

Yes, we're talking 2 inches of ice!

First ice is about getting on a lake that hasn't been fishable for a couple of weeks or even a month. Why wait a few more weeks for six more inches of ice to form when you could be out fishing?
