Here is your middle park fishing report for the week of 1-14-19.
Williams Fork, Ice has been 8-11'' check as you go. Rainbows have been slow to moderate with most of the action coming early in the morning in shallow water (3 to 8') on small jigs and spoons tipped with meal worms or wax worms. Plenty of small lake trout (13 to 18 inches) are still being caught on structure in 60 to 80 feet of water on or near the bottom. Small jigs and spoons have been the top producers for smaller lake trout. The lake trout bite has slowed down in recent days so keep moving around structure until you find the greatest concentration of fish and expect some very light bites. The larger lake trout have been tough recently but larger tubes and moving around the lake has produced a few good sized fish. Hochevar, guide Fishing with BernieGrand Lake has 10-12" of ice everywhere we've been. Rainbows have been very active in shallow water. Small jigs tipped with wax worms have been getting bit. Browns are a little deeper, small jigs are working for them also. Lake trout are hitting in 40-80' of water. 1"-3" tubes tipped with sucker meat have been working very well. Lake Granby has 8-10" of ice everywhere we've been. Rainbows are active early in the morning in 3-8' of water. Small jigs tipped with wax worms are working. Lake Trout have been active in 30-90' of water. 2-3" tubes and spoons tipped with sucker meat are getting bit.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND CHECK THE ICE AS YOU GO OUT!
