Kokanee is excellent at Wolford, trolling with small pink and orange spoons and spinners tipped with white shoe peg corn is working. Two- to 3-year-old fish are being caught at about 10 feet deep. Four-year-olds are being caught about four colors of lead deep. Jigging spoons will be very effective in the next few weeks.
The pike fishing at Williams Fork is very good. The top water bite is in full swing, some very large fish have been caught recently.
The Fraser River through Winter Park and Fraser has been fishing very well with nymphs during the day and some great dry fly action in the evenings. The streams in Rocky Mountain National Park are starting to fish very well with dry flies and nymphs.
Browns and rainbows are hitting crankbaits and small spoons along the shore at Grand Lake. Lake Trout are hitting a large variety of lures, the presentation has varied from day to day, tipping jigs with sucker meat has helped the bite considerably. Please be careful and release any larger fish, these fish can be over 40 years old and could use our protection.
