Summer Fishing

Starts about 4-6 weeks after ice off and lasts through mid September

As the trout move deeper we concentrate on jigging for them. Jigging can be a very precise presentation, the fish hit very light and quick. This is a very rewarding style of fishing. You work the jig, get the bite, set the hook and hopefully land the fish. We generally target lake trout throughout the summer. We can target trophies or try to catch your limit.

Control your fluorocarbon

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.

Call in sick, turn your phone off and go Fish!

Our summer has been filled with tons of fish, and the bite is stilling going strong. We had at least one fish a day over 3 feet long last week.

Next month means jigging deep for Lake Trout. The only hooks that I use are the Trokar 810 and the Eagle Claw 574bp.

The day will start on Lake Granby or Grand Lake (your preference) and will go for about 6-8 hours depending on the weather and how the fish are biting.
