Weekly fishing report 1-22-19

Here is your middle park fishing report for the week of 1-22-19. Due to the last couple snowstorms we are starting to experience a little bit of slush on the lakes. We are still seeing people walk long distances and ATV's out also. 

Williams Fork 10 to 14'' - Williams Fork is starting to develop some areas of slush out there due to recent snowfall and warmer conditions. Williams Fork has been fishing well for lake trout in the 13 to 18 inch range in 40 to 80 feet of water. Small plastics with a small amount of sucker meat have been producing fish. Smaller spoons have been productive as well. A few pike have been caught, mostly in 10 feet of water or less. Rainbow action is mostly in shallow as well, in about 8 feet of water or less. The bulk of the action is early in the morning 6:45 to 9:30.

Grand Lake is fishing very well. Rainbows and a few browns are in shallow water eating bright colored jigs and spoons. Early mornings have been best. Lake trout are active in 30-80', small plastics tipped with sucker meat have been doing very well. Slab spoons have also been producing lots of fish. 

Lake Granby's lake trout are very active till around noon. Small plastic jigs and spoons are catching the majority of fish. Rainbows are active in 3-10' of water eating anything bright as long as its tipped with bait.
