Grand county fishing report for the week of 9-23-19

Here is your Grand County fishing report for the week of 9-16-19. The trees are turning, some of the fish are spawning and the lake trout are not far off.

Williams Fork: Surface temp is 60. Water capacity is 88% and dropping. Water clarity is very good. Ramp hours are 7AM to 7PM. I hear this year CPW is not closing the inlet to fishing. The small Lake Trout bite is excellent once located. Laker's under 22" are lite biting tubes or grubs tipped with sucker meat in 80 to 100 foot. Keep your lines tight to detect the lite bite and one should have no problem limiting. Rainbow fishing has slowed bottom fishing with bait and casting. A few fish are being caught lake wide. Kokanee trolling is slow. Northern Pike are slow but after casting for a few hours we hooked a couple on jerk baits. Randy H Guide - Fishing with

Grand Lake: Lake Trout are piling up on structure preparing for the spawn. Small white grubs will get bit. Rainbows are eating flies and spoons early and late in the day. Browns are eating minnow patterns along the rocks.

Lake Granby: Rainbows are getting aggressive again and can be caught with small spoons near inlets. There are a few Kokanee in Columbine Bay, casting is best until the sun hits the water then try trolling. The night bite for browns continues to be excellent, floating minnow baits worked well over the weekend. Lake trout are continuing to move towards their spawning areas but they are not in the areas yet. Tubes tipped with sucker meat are working very well.
