Here is your middle park fishing report for the week of 12-26-2018. Ice conditions are changing daily, please use extreme caution while walking on the ice. Rainbows are being caught in 3'-8' of water. A 2 rod set up, one with a small spoon and the other with a small ice jig tipped with a meal worm seems to be working very well. Look for the rainbows and browns off of rocky/gravel points early in the morning. Kokanee are in deeper water generally suspending 10'-50' deep. They are following the plankton. Small bright colored spoons tipped with wax worms will entice strikes. Lake Trout are cruising in 30'-80' deep. Small soft plastics tipped with sucker meat should get bit.
Grand lake has 5" or more of ice everywhere we have fished it.
Shadow Mountain had 4" where we checked it.
Williams Fork still had open water as of the 22nd.
Granby has open water and plenty of spots with 1"-3" of ice.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND CHECK THE ICE AS YOU GO OUT!
