Middle Park area fishing report 5-30-2017


Grand lake has been fishing fair to good depending on the weather.   Water clarity is approximately 6ft, with lots of water coming in.  Best time to be out is early and late.   Brown trout and rainbow trout are biting on worms,  chrome spinners,  and crankbaits fished along the shorelines. Lake trout are moving deeper as the water warms and can be caught fishing the drop offs with tube jigs and sucker meat,   the depth varies depending on the day but typically between 30-75 ft.   Dan Shannon - Guide,  Fishing with Bernie

Granby has been great for rainbows, browns and lakers. The water temp still has a few lake trout shallow, with the warm weather forecasted the fish could be moving deeper. Lakers are biting on crank baits, jigs and bait. Rainbows will continue to swim along the shorelines. Worms, powerbait and spoons are working well. Moving water seems to attract a lot of rainbows. Browns have been chasing crank baits during lowlight periods and jigs while the un is up. Fishing around rocks has been very successful.

Williams Fork has been good for lake trout. Tubes with sucker meat and spoons have been producing some good fish. Pike fishing has been slow. The warming water should help the bite out a little. Try fishing the windy side of the lake in the afternoons. Rainbows are being caught along the shorelines. Bernie Keefe has been a fishing guide in Grand county for over 25 years.
