This middle park fishing report is being brought to you by the Fishing with Bernie team for the week of 2-5-19. We are seeing very little slush around the lake. We could use some snow on the ice to help make the ride smoother.
Williams Fork is still fishing well for smaller lake trout in the 12-17'' range, using small plastics in the 1 to 3 inch range. These plastics have been most productive when tipped with small pieces of sucker meat. The key seems to be to keep moving around structure in 30 - 70 feet of water until you find the greatest concentration of fish. Quite a few fish have started showing up suspended in the water column, so keep an eye on your fish finder and be looking for those fish. Rainbow action has remained slow to moderate with a fewlargefish being caught. Most of the rainbow action will be in shallow and will happen from sunrise and will last about 2 hours, small spoons tipped with wax or meal worms have been producing fish. The pike have been hit and miss with most of the fish being caught in 20 feet of water or less. Slush has improved from last week, however there are some nasty spots remaining. Look for snow that appears darker or slightly grey than the areas around it and avoid these areas as they are likely slushy. To book a trip with Sam call him at (720)666-0141
Grand Lake is fishing well for lake trout in 30-80' of water. Small grubs tipped with sucker meat are working well. Rainbows and browns are along the shoreline and hitting small bright colored jigs in 5-10' of water. To book a trip on Grand Lake call Dan Shannon (303) 956-3804 or Jake Foos (303) 434-8468.
Lake Granby is fishing very good for lake trout. Fish the 50-8-' depths with tubes, spoons or minor baits tipped with a small piece of sucker meat. Rainbows are being caught along the shorelines very early in the morning with small bright colored jigs in less than 15' of water.
