Surface temp is 62 rising to upper 60’s by end of day. Water capacity is 100%. Water clarity is 10′ to 15′ in the main body. Lake Trout in 14″ to 25″ range have been feeding aggressively for the first few hours of the day, then drop off by midday. Small tubes or grubs tipped with sucker meat is working well in 50′ to 100′. Large Laker’s have moved to deeper water. Bait fishing or casting for Rainbows is fair to good depending on the day. Casting small spoons or spinners where the river meets the lake can be very productive early and late. Northern Pike are slow, but if favorable weather conditions exist the fishing can be exciting. Casting hardware to windblown shores can produce some strikes. Kokanee trolling is slow at best.

Grand Lake is fishing well for lake trout in 30-80’ of water. Small jigs or spoons tipped with sucker meat are getting bit. Rainbows are hitting lures early and late in the day.

Granby is still fishing very well along the shoreline for rainbows with small lures or power bait. Trollers are doing well with small crankbaits along the shoreline. Lake trout are continuing their migration to the depths. Look for them in 40-100’ of water. Tubes, swimbaits or spoons tipped with sucker meat are working well. Trollers are doing well with “flashy” spoons.

The Fishing with Bernie team has been guiding in Grand county for over 25 years.
