  5. My family and I are heading up to Keystone for a week and me and my dad are gonna head up to Granby for a day of fishing. I understand it is late in the year, but ...more any suggestions would be appreciated from lures to jigs, to fishing line, everything. We plan on renting a boat for the day and we would like to catch some nice lake trout , but we are not picky, we really don't get a chance to do fishing like this living in Texas.Thanks for any help.

  6. heading up to Granby next week. Fishing from the shore on 7/5 and rented a boat for 7/6. I have been to Granby a few times with varying levels of success. I am ...more taking a friend of mine who rarely fishes and would like to put him on some fish. I thought we would just go after rainbow trout off the boat in the morning because that may be a little easier for him. I was thinking of taking worms, salmon eggs and powerbait balls. If we do well, we might try for a mack in the afternoon. I have had some lick in the Colorado River arm before, but does anyone have any suggestions where we might go or bait to use? Greatly appreciated.

      Aaron, this time of year from the shore is tough. The surface temp is above 60 so the fish are deep. I would shore fish at Willow creek res this time of as you discribed. ...more You can also use a bobber, 2.5 to 3 ft of leader, a split pee weight 1 ft below the bobber and a worn. For trolling on 7/6 off a rental boat use 3 to 4 oz of weight ahead of your flashers and a wedding ring behind with a worm. If you have a diver put it where the weight would be. If you have a portable down rigger they were at 50 to 65 ft when I was there on 6/24.

      Hello Arron. Your plan from fishing from is a good one, and you should do well. As far as fishing from a boat for trout, is to slow troll with long lines with your ...more typical trout spinner baits, salmon eggs worms etc. If you want to hunt for larger Lake Trout or Browns, and if you don't have sonar where you can see fish at the deeper depths or hugging bottom, than the best bet is to use large sinkers 1 to 2 oz, and hooks tipped with sucker meat, or crawlers and lower your baited weighted line until you can feel the bottom at depths of 60 feet or greater and drift. Raise your weight about a foot or two off the bottom to drift your bait a couple of feet above the bottom to entice Lakers or browns. Typically in the summer they hug bottom or cruise at the deeper depths during midday. The bite is usually best during the early morning hours and later in the day until sundown. If you get tired of hunting for the large Lakers or Browns, go back to trolling trout lures tipped with your favorite baits, and anything could be possible, but typically you will catch rainbows. Check in with the local bait stores, and buy a lure or worms, and ask them to show you on their map where the fishing is best. They are usually very friendly and eager to share information with their customers. Here is a video I located on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBcQk4HgARM, with folks fishing lake Granby in July. Good luck, and let us know how you do. I will be there on July 17th for a week with my brother who will visit me from Phoenix. Rip some lips!! Pete in Littleton CO.
