The ice is getting very soft in the afternoons, this is a good time for me to put my ice gear away for the season and get my open water gear ready. The rivers are starting to get very high and off colored. Rapalas, big streamers, egg and worm patterns will work up until the water gets to muddy. Shadow Mountain, the pump canal and the inter connecting channel are all fishing very well for rainbows with an occasional brown. Shadow mtn spillway is fishing well for browns, rainbows and an occasional kokanee. Jigs under bobbers, spawn sacs and worms are all producing.
The rivers are opening up and fishing with small nymphs, eggs and worms is fantastic,small spinners and crank baits will work on the nicer afternoons, visibility will be the key. The pump canal, inter connecting channel and Shadow Mtn spillway are all fishing very well for Rainbows and Browns. Jigs, spawn sacs and small crank baits like a #5 Flicker shad are working excellent. The Kokanee at Wolford and Willow Creek are still sporadic but are being caught by the persistent fisher people. The lake trout in Granby and Williams Fork are biting well on small jigs(tubes, fuzzy grubs and Berkeley Gulp “Mantis Shrimp” ) tipped with sucker meat.
Updated 2.18.14The slush is here and very bad in spots. The rainbows are hitting well at Willow Creek, Wolford and Williams Fork, there are a lot of trout along the shorelines in the deeper reservoirs. There are still a few spawning Kokanee in Wolford, the younger ones are hitting down by the dam in the old river channel. Lakers in Granby and Williams Fork are biting very good on small jigs tipped with sucker meat.
