Middle Park area fishing report 5-16-2017

The weather has gotten nicer, along with it the water is starting to warm. This will start to push the lake trout down a little bit. The bank fishermen will have another week to try their luck at some larger lake trout. Bait, spoons and soft plastics will all work at various times. Trollers are catching them on spoons, crank baits and spinners. Jiggers are dropping tubes, hair jigs, swim baits, Gulp minnows, and spoons along with a variety of other lures. They are being caught at depths of 5'-65'.
Rainbows are still along the shorelines and the bite is awesome, recent stockings have made for some great fishing. Worms, power bait, spoons, spinners, just about anything flashy is working.
Brown trout fishing is awesome early, late and on cloudy days. Crank baits cast near shore are catching most fish.
Suckers are still in the inlets but should be moving out pretty soon. Worms anchored to the bottom should catch lots of suckers.
Williams fork opened to boating on Saturday the 13th.
