Conditions : Lake Granby - As of 4/8/2022, Fishing with Bernie Guide Dan Shannon reports, “For brown trout find rocks and work a more aggressive jigging action with spoon or minnow imitation bait. Lake trout are still being found at a variety of depths from 20’ to 85’. Natural colored plastics such as tubes or grubs tipped with sucker have been the go-to bait, but have a bait that glows as well as this seems to trigger the more passive fish. The ice is still holding up but average temps are increasing daily and conditions can change fast as spring approaches, stay safe as you head out on the ice!”

Grand Lake - as of 4/8/2022, Fishing with Bernie guide Jake Foos reports, “Rainbows are starting to think about moving water again and that means we have to move towards where the spawn will take place. We suggest focusing efforts on river channels and being in the nearby areas. Match the hatch- scuds and crustaceans will produce the best. Now is the time in the year to think “natural” when selecting a color. Soft plastics drop-shotted have been the best bait as of late in 2-15 feet of water. Lake trout are definitely getting ready for their ice-out pattern and that means there is a suspended bite right now. Hole hop, fish a lot of water and find those fish. Once you have found the area they are at, stay planted, you might just have the best day of fishing yet. Fish these suspenders with something that will draw attention. Spoons have been best.”
