Conditions : Lake Granby - Report from the Grand County Fishing Report from Fishing with Bernie. As of 3/8/2020, warm and windy weather has firmed up ice and relieved recent slush issues. Bernie reports that “lake trout have been active in 50-90' of water. They are suspending over very deep water (150').” Anglers can go after lake trout by throwing spoons, tubes, and twisters. Otherwise, rainbow and brown trout are “eating small jigs in less than 10' of water” and should be fished in the early morning hours.

Grand Lake - Report from the Grand County Fishing Report from Fishing with Bernie. As of 3/8/2020, the best fishing on Grand Lake is found in water 20 feet or less, where rainbow and brown trout are found. Small spoons in pink or silver tipped with wax or butter worm are recommended to fish these shallow waters. Fishing for lake trout has been less consistent as they have migrated to suspended locations in deeper water. While it is wise to work across the entire water column, “lake trout are being caught in 50 to 70 feet of water on small one to three inch plastics tipped with sucker meat. Bite has been fair to good in the morning and normally dies off sometime around one or two in the afternoon. Concentrations of fish are being found around structure such as points, drop offs and humps. Most fish are being caught on or near the bottom.
