Weekly fishing report 1-7-19

Williams Fork,Ice has been 5-8" check the ice 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. Plenty of small lake trout (13 to 18 inches) are being caught on structure in 40 to 80 feet of water on or near the bottom. Small soft plastics in the 1 to 3 inch range tipped with small pieces of sucker meat have produced most of the fish. Keep moving around structure in these depths to find the greatest concentration of fish as it can vary greatly from day to day. The larger lake trout have been tough recently but larger tubes have produced a few good sized fish. Hochevar, guide Fishing with berniekeefe@hotmail.com
