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.

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.

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.
