Weekly Middle Park report for the week of 3-3-19

Here is your middle park report for the week of 3-3-19-19 The ice is reaching over 20" on a lot of our lakes up here. We did get a lot of snow on the lakes, slush might become a problem again. The wind drifting snow is continuing to cause problems for people on the "back roads".

Williams fork is starting to pick back up after the tournament last weekend for the 12 - 17'' lake trout. Small spoons and plastics (single tail grubs, flukes, tubes) under 3 inches jigged in 40 to 80 feet of water have been producing fish. Pike are becoming more active in shallow water (15 feet or less) however the bite is hit and miss (some days they are very difficult if not impossible to get to bite) . Rainbows remain active in shallow water (10 feet or less) from sunrise until about 8:30. Look for shallow flats in front of or around large bays to find the highest concentration of rainbows. To book a trip call Sam at (720) 666-0141 to book with Jake ‭(303) 434-8468‬.Grand Lake is VERY slushy. The rainbows and browns are eating small jigs tipped with wax worms in less the 10' of water. Lake trout Are being caught in 30-80' of water. Tubes, twisters and spoons all seem to be working well.
