Lake Granby area fishing report 9-4-13

This lake Granby area fishing report is being brought to you by “Fishing with Bernie”. The crawdads have hatched!!!! The past couple weeks the fishing has been getting tougher on Granby, Grand Lake and Williams Fork. The fish will still bite but it takes some patience. The rainbows and browns are hitting crankbaits and spoons around the shoreline very early and late in the day.  The Brook trout in the streams around Rocky Mountain National Park and Winter Park are still hitting large dries, spinners and small crank baits in the evenings With the water rising after rainstorms streamers have become effective. Pike fishing at Williams fork is still fair but it should be getting a lot better as the weather starts cooling.  The Kokanee bite at Wolford is good to excellent in the mornings.
