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.
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.
