7-8-19 Middle Park fishing report

Here is your Middle Park fishing report for the week of 7-8-19.

Grand Lake: 52 degrees, fishing is great for rainbows around the shorelines. Flies and a bubble, small spoons or jerk baits are working well. Lake trout are being caught on small jigs tipped with bait. Sucker meat seems to be the bait of choice.

Lake Granby: 56 degrees, Brown trout fishing has slowed considerably but a few are still being caught early and late in the day. The night bite should be picking up. Rainbows are still being caught around the shorelines, powerboat and worms are getting bit. Look for hatches in the evenings and cast flies or small spoons to the rises. Lake trout are still very catchable. Jiggers are getting them on spoons or tube jigs tipped with sucker meat. Trollers are doing well with squids, spoons and crank baits.

Williams Fork: Surface temp is 61 rising to mid 60's by days end. Water capacity is 99%. Water clarity in the main body is 10'+. The Lake Trout bite is still good for all age groups during the early AM. The bite slows mid day but picks up again late afternoon. We are seeing fish through out the entire water column from 50 to 100'. Lake Trout are scattered, but stopping on marked fish and dropping grubs or tubes tipped with sucker meat will porduce some hits. Rainbow fishing is good casting hardware at rises early and late in the day, as is bottom fishing with worms, salmon eggs or Power Bait. Northern Pike has picked up a bit but one has to work hard to hook up. Best opportunity is early AM and late PM casting the shore lines. Trolling for Kokanee is very slow due to low population.
