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. https://youtu.be/GOGlOwbX7Zo
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.
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.
This lake Granby area fishing report is being brought to you by “Fishing with Bernie”.The weather has cooled a bit and the bite has been getting better every week. The Kokanee in Wolford reservoir are starting to school up and a few are being caught by trolling lead-core or down riggers.

In the early 70's my cousin introduced me to fishing. He would take me to private ponds and we would catch Bluegills, Crappies, and Bass with a bobber and Flea Flies. He taught me about varying the depth to find the fish, and to keep the jig out of the weeds.
Last spring we were in the boats on Lake Granby April 14th. This year I fished on the ice April 28th. What a difference a year makes. Over the next 2 weeks Granby will be losing it's ice. Looking up into Rocky Mountain National Park (above Grand Lake) I see a lot of snow.
It's hard to believe that this time last year I was able to be on my Crestliner fishing on Lake Granby. This year spring fishing has been delayed because of the weather and all of the snow the mountains have gotten from the last two storms.
