Williams Fork - Surface temp is 60. Water capacity is 92% and dropping. Water clarity is 10 to 15'. Ramp hours are 7AM to 7PM. Lake Trout under 21" are hitting small grubs or tubes tipped with sucker meat in 80 to 100 foot. Bites are very light, keep your line tight to detect the hit. If you master the light bite... one should be able to easily limit. Bank fishing for Rainbows is slow but some are being caught lake wide on worms or Power Bait. Casting to rises early and late in the day may produce some hits. Northern Pike are starting to move shallower, but fishing for them is slow. Kokanee are slow due to low population.
