Middle Park area fishing report 6-5-2017


Lake Granby

Water temps are in the 50's in the morning. The lake is filling 1/2-1' a day. Please. be careful there is a lot of floating debris on the lake. Rainbow fishing is great around the inlets, those willing to hike into Columbine bay from Shadow Man spillway will be rewarded with some great fly fishing. Browns are still eating minnows and crawdads around the rocky areas during low light periods, tubes, jerk baits and spoons are all producing fish. Lake trout have started to move out of the shallow water. They can still be caught from the banks, try casting to steep dropping shorelines. Boaters are doing well with tubes, hair jigs, spoons and minnow style baits.

Williams Fork Fishing Report

Surface temp is in the low 50's. Lake Trout bite is slow to fair. Tubes or grubs tipped with sucker meat are producing hits in 50' to 100' of water. Rainbows are feeding on bugs on the surface. Fly and bubble, spinners and shallow running crank baits should produce some hits. Trollers are catching a few Kokanee Salmon. Small schools are running at 30'. Northern Pike remain slow but can be found in shallow water on a sunny day. Floating crank baits and spoons/spinners are producing an occasional hit. Fishing choppy water is your best bet.
