Middle Park fishing report for the week of 6-4-18


Here is your middle park report for the week of 6-4-18. 

Grand Lakes Surface temp is in the high 40's. As the summer time temps raise, the trout have been sliding out a little bit deeper to follow the prime water. Right now, it is very important watch your electronics and adjust your techniques accordingly. Fishing high in the water column has been productive but once the sun beats down on the surface, the trout have been going deeper. Casting small spoons and spinners has been best for the rainbows and browns lately in 5-20 feet of water.  The cooler water seems to be holding the fish so early and late in the day have been the best times for consistency. The lake trout on Grand Lake seem to be close to steep drops where they can get at their meal and then retreat back to the deeper, cooler water. Small tubes with a small piece of meat and spoons have been working best. I have been seeing the majority of the fish from 30-60 feet deep depending on time of day. The fly fishing remains good using large, dark bugs. Once the water clears up a bit, it will be prime dry fly time and that means some great fishing is right around the corner. As summer progresses, the terrestrials will be out and that will be some fantastic fun. Jake Foos, guide- Fishing with Bernie

Williams Fork, Surface temp is in the low 50's. Williams Fork is at 91% capacity. Lake Trout bite is very good. We are finding most fish in 50' to 70' foot of water on rubber jigs tipped with sucker meat on or just above the bottom. Rainbows are being caught from shore on spinners and tight-lining with worms, eggs or Power Bait. Northern Pike is slow as is trolling for Kokanee. There is still a lot of debris on the water. Watch out for logs and be safe! Randy Hall Guide - Fishing with Bernie.

Lake Granby, Surface temp is in the 50's. Rainbows are in the shallows. Worms, power bait, small spoons and spinners are working well. Browns are near rocky areas. Marabou jigs, spoons and crank baits are all producing fish throughout the day.

Lake trout fishing is very good, tube jigs tipped with sucker meat,  Reelbait slab spoons and "Gulp" minnows are all working for the jiggers. Trollers are catching fish on spoons and crank baits. There are a few kokanee being caught over deeper water with small bright spoons and spinners.
