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.
Willow Creek,Wolford and the North Park Lakes are fishing well for rainbows. In the Shallower North Park lakes the fish are starting to move out into the basin. Look for a few about 6′ below the ice in deep water. Heavy Tungsten Jigs made by Clam worked well last week. The Kokanee at Wolford are in the river channel, a few are being caught on spoons tipped with wax worms. Lake trout at Williams Fork, Green Mtn and Granby are biting very well on soft plastics tipped with a small piece of sucker meat.
The lakes in the area have ice and people are walking and riding on them. Be aware of the pressure ridges and cross them with caution. Grand Lake and Willow Creek is fishing very well for rainbows in 6-10′ of water. The pump canal is fishing well with small ice jigs and bait under a bobber. Willow Creek is also fishing well for Kokanee in the river channel. The Lakers in Granby and Williams fork are biting well in 30-80′ of water.
Shadow Mountain Lake, Grand Lake, Willow Creek, Williams Fork, Wolford and Monarch are covered with ice. Please be careful if you go out and check the ice as you go. The lakes have been frozen but the wind has opened each of them back up again, then they re-froze. The Rainbows are biting everywhere along the shorelines, the key is to fish early. My trout bite has been over by 1030 each day. The Lakers are biting well on tubes, twisters and spawn sacs.Lake John and Delaney Buttes are covered and the fishing is AWESOME!
