Middle park fishing report for the week of 8-27


Here is your Middle Park fishing report for the week of 8-27-19.  Fork Fishing Report, Surface temp is 64 in the early AM. Water level is at 89% and dropping. Last weeks stocking of 3,500 small Rainbows put a hurt on the Pike bite. Pike fishing is slow but if one keeps after it you may come up with a fish or two. Fish the shore line for small Pike, deeper water for trophies. Lake trout bite has slowed dramatically this week. Small metal spoons tipped with sucker meat are producing more hits than rubber jigs in 80 to 100 foot of water. Shore fisherman are catching the recently stocked Rainbows on small spinners or fly and bubble late in the day. Bank fishing the bottom with bait is slow. You'll catch more Crawdads than fish.

Grand Lake, The fishing has drastically slowed down, but a few lake trout are being caught on small jigs tipped with sucker meat. Rainbows are best in the evening with small spoons or a fly and bubble combination. 

Lake Granby, Rainbows are best early and late using small spoons or fly and a bubble combo. Lake Trout are in 60-120' of water. They were hitting slab spoons tipped with sucker meat, small power bait twister tails and tubes tipped with sucker meat. A few kokanee have been caught by trollers in Columbine bay. 

Wolford, The kokanee fishing has been very good. Down riggers or jigging spoons seem to have the highest success rate. Keep changing colors and speed till they bite.
