8-12-19 Grand County fishing report

Here is your Grand County fishing report for the week of August 5, 2019.

Williams Fork - Surface temp is 66 early AM warming to 71 on a clear day. Water capacity is 99%. Water clarity is about 10 foot. With the "dog days" of summer now upon us the Lake Trout bite has dropped off, but we are still catching in 80 to 90 foot of water on small grubs or tubes tipped with sucker meat. Scent attractant seems to help get the fish to bite. Patience is key this time of year. The Rainbow bite has also slowed, but bank fishermen are catching a few fish lake wide bottom fishing with bait. There is a good population of small Rainbows surface feeding early AM where the river meets the lake near the driftwood piles. Fly and bubble will work best on them. Northern Pike and Kokanee Salmon are slow. Randy H Guide - Fishing with Bernie

Grand Lake- A few rainbows are being caught early and late around the inlets. A few browns have been caught casting around boat docks early and late in the day. Lake trout are being caught on small jigs and spoons tipped with sucker meat.

Lake Granby- Look for rainbows in the back of the bays feeding on bugs just before dark. Small spoons are working well. A few kokanee are starting are starting to show up in Grand bay. Lake trout are being caught in 50'-100' of water. Trollers are catching a few on spoons, jiggers are doing well with twisters, heavy spoons and tubes. The last report mentioned patience with your spots. Its still important.
