This weeks middle park report is brought to you by Fishing with Bernie. The temps in the morning are dropping to 32 degrees, Snow has made an appearance in the valley also. Fantastic fall fishing is getting closer, for now present your baits carefully and remember exactly what you were doing when you get bit. Repeat that and you should be successful.
Williams Fork Fishing Report. The surface temp at Williams Fork is 62 in the morning warming to 65 in the afternoon. Temps in deep water have not changed. The lake has dropped about 5' since the first of the month. Boat ramp hours are 6AM to 8PM. This week the Lake Trout bite has been hit and miss depending on the day. My clients are catching fish vertical jigging 90 to 120 foot with bright colored Berkley grubs tipped with sucker meat. Bite is best early AM but one can find fish all day. Fishing for Rainbows from shore near the east boat ramp should be good. The lake was recently stocked with 2000 catch-able Rainbows. Casting small spinners or bottom fishing should produce some fish. Kokanee trolling remains slow. Persistent trollers are getting few fish 16" to 19" at 30 to 40 foot. Large Northern Pike are sitting in deeper cooler water. Younger fish are hugging the shore lines. Working the shoreline with spinner or jerk baits should produce some hits. Work deeper water for the larger fish. Randy Hall - Guide, Fishing with Bernie
