7-1-19 Middle Park fishing report

Here is your Middle Park fishing report for the week of 7-1-19. Have a safe and happy 4th of July.

Lake Granby: Temps 56 degrees. Rainbows are still hitting spoons, power bait and worms early and late in the day. Browns are still cruising the shorelines, minnow and crawdad patterns seem to work best. Lake trout are being caught at 30-100' of water. Tube jigs tipped with sucker meat are working for the jiggers. Trollers are doing well with spoons.

Grand Lake: Temps 48 degrees. Rainbows and browns are active early and late in the day. Casting lures around running water or close to the bank is your best bet. Lake trout are scattered throughout the depths. Tubes and spoons tipped with sucker meat will get strikes.

Williams Fork: Surface temp is still running 56 to 57 early AM climbing to 60 on a sunny day. Water capacity is 98%. Water clarity is 10' - 15' in the main body. Spring run off is bringing lots of debris into the lake. Keep any eye out for logs and branches. Lake trout bite is good one day slower the next. We are catching all age groups in 50 to 90' on grubs or tubes tipped with sucker meat. The fish are scattered, keep an eye on your sonar for suspended fish and fish parked on the bottom. Kokanee trolling is slow at best. Rainbow fishing is good with bait or casting hardware. Best times are early and late in the day. We are starting to see the Northern's picking up especially on windy days. Casting shallow running baits to the shore is producing some strikes.
