7-22-19 Middle Park fishing report

Here is your weekly Grand County fishing report for the week of 7-22-19. Lake Granby - Rainbows are hitting small spoons and flies early and late in the day. Look for the "risers" and cast to them. When the sun is up power bait and worms on the bottom are working well. A few browns are still being caught around the shorelines very early and late. The night bite is picking up around rocky areas and the inlets. Lake trout are being caught in depths of 40-100' of water. Tubes, spoons, johnny darters tipped with sucker meat are getting bit. trollers are doing well with spoons.

Grand Lake - Lake trout fishing is fair for 13-20" fish. Tube jigs, spoons and Johnny darters are all producing strikes. Fishing is best before or after the lake gets busy. Depths seem to be 30'-80'. Rainbows and browns are still being caught around the shorelines early and late in the day.

Williams Fork - Surface temp is 64/65 in the early AM. Water capacity is 100%. Water clarity is 10 ' plus in the main body. With the high surface temps Northern Pike will be going thru food fast... this is one of the best times of year to hook up with big fish. Northern fishing is slow, but the persistent angler should be able to see some follows and a get hit or two. Work deeper water early AM, shallower water late PM. The juvenile lake trout bite is good for a few hours in the morning then drops to random hits late AM. We are catching in 70' to 100 ' of water with small tubes or jigs tipped with sucker meat. Large Lake Trout have moved to deep water. Once located patience & presentation is the key. Rainbows are being caught lake wide bottom fishing with Power Bait, worms or Salmon eggs. Casting small spinners or spoons early and late in the day at rises, or working the inlet can be very productive. Randy H Guide - Fishing with Bernie
