Here is your Middle Park fishing report for the week of 8-21-19. Williams Fork Fishing Report, Surface temp is holding steady at 64 at 6AM. Water level is at 90% and dropping daily. Will Fork was stocked with 3,500 Rainbows last week. Say goodby to Pike fishing in the east boat ramp bay for a couple of weeks! It had to happen some time... the lake trout bite has gotten slow. We are seeing plenty of fish in 80' to 100' of water but getting them to bite is difficult. We keep moving from spot to spot dropping rubber jigs tipped with sucker meat on the fish and get a very light hit or two at each spot at or near the bottom. Moving from spot to spot I'm seeing small schools of Kokanee at 40'. Trollers are hooking up with an occasional Kokanee, Rainbow or small lake trout. Bottom fishing from shore is slow but Rainbows are breaking the surface early AM, late PM and overcast days. Casting to groups of rises with small spoons or spinners should produce some hits. Northern Pike are slow but we got a couple of nice fish last week. Work the shore line for young Pike, deeper water for trophies. Randy H Guide - Fishing with firstname.lastname@example.org
Grand Lake is fishing well in the evenings for rainbows and an occasional brown trout. Casting spoons or a fly and a bubble to risers has been very successful. Lake trout have gotten a little more picky this week. sizing down seemed to help.
Wolford has been fishing very well for kokanee, trollers with lead core line or down riggers have been catching fish consistently. he key seems to be changing colors when the fish quit hitting. Jiggers have been doing very well with "reel bait:" Plain jane spoons tipped with wax worms, shrimp or white shoe peg corn.
Lake Granby, The rainbows are hitting powerbait and lures fished near the shorelines. A few kokanee are showing top in the deeper water in Grand bay. Lake trout are getting finicky. Changing lure colors often seems to help the bite.
