Grand County fishing report for the week of 8-18-19

Here is your Grand county fishing report for the week of 8-18-19

Williams Fork - Surface temp is 66 early in the morning warming to low 70's on a sunny day. Water capacity is holding at 99%. Water clarity is about 10 foot. The lake trout bite has slowed down... but with a bit of patience working a small grub or tube tipped with sucker meat within in a few inches of the bottom should produce limits in 80' to 100' of water. Rainbow fishing has also slowed. Shore fishermen bottom fishing with Power Bait, worms or Salmon eggs are landing a few fish. Casting to rises with small spinners or fly and bubble early and late in the day will produce some strikes. The inlet can be very productive on small Rainbows. Northern Pike remain slow. I'm not sure if it's due to an abundance of food, lack of population, or both. Best bets are first light and late PM. Kokanee trolling is very slow at best. Randy H Guide - Fishing with

Grand Lake is fishing fair for lake trout. Jigs either on the bottom or targeting specific fish suspended are working well. Rainbows are being caught early and late by the inlets.

Granby is fishing good for lake trout. 70'-100' seems to be a very productive depth. White tubes, spoons and hair jigs tipped with sucker meat are getting bit. Rainbows have gotten tougher, bait on the bottom is still catching a few.
