Here is your middle park report for the week of 2-18-19. It seems if we're not getting -10 it's going to be very windy lately. Be careful on the back roads, the snow has been drifting and people are getting stuck.
Williams Fork, The fishing seems to have slowed down a little bit in the past week. Added pressure by anglers and inconsistent weather patterns are playing a big part in this. Ice is ranging in the 16-20 in range with a good amount of snow and slush on top.
The 12-20 inch lake trout are biting smaller jigs then they were last week. Bio Bait tubes, Fuzz-E-Grubs, Watsit grubs seems to be working best. Tip all jigs with a small piece of meat and add a little bit of scent for best results.
The Big Fish continue to roam and have been showing up but proving difficult to connect with. Large swim-baits well off the bottom have been getting the most action.
Rainbows and Browns continue to cruise the shallows. Panfish Leech Flutter spoons worked aggressively and small, bright colored jigs topped with wax worms seem to be working best. Concentrate your efforts in 6-15 feet of water for best results.
