Took wife and dogs to granby for the weekend.Started out at 730am sat and motored into Columbine bay- pretty chilly ride-Tried various metal and tubes,sacs and suckermeat but caught only 5 or 6 bos biggest 14".I missed a lot of hits on metal,lost some tiny salmon I think.Fished till 1230pm and had a 23"or so mac chase a bouyant but that was it.

Here's a pic of the ride:



Spent the afternoon collecting driftwood in the boat for a raging fire!
Went out in arapaho bay inlet area at 4pm and slayed the little bos on a fly/bubble/sucker meat combo.Musta caught 20 of 'em. Biggest was 14".Talked to a guy in a kayak who said he was tryin for browns but had nothing.
Went out sunday at 720am and fished close to boat ramp again caught only bos to 13",tried draggin s-meat and such.Headed up-lake and started htrowing metal along the cliffs along north side of arapaho bay and caught a 23" mac and had a few chasers.Caugth a few bos(13") on same . Lost a bo about 18" on a silver bouyant.It seemed anything of size I either lost or missed.Switched to a twister/suckermeat and caught a 20" mac and had several follows.I was throwing to shore and working it out to 30-40 ft. I was watching 2 guys in a lund jigging in about 55 ft and they were slaying macs like every 2 or 3 minutes.This was about 10am and I finally cruised nearer to them and I started seeing fish on the finder along the bottom and dropped a tube/s-meat down and instantly hooked up with a 20" mac.Caught a few more the same size and it was 11 am and time to leave.There were very few boats left on the lake and the campground was almost deserted when we left at 1145.I noticed that bluish algae indicative of turnover floating around,I will attribute that to my lack of succes this weekend!

I think its just a little early yet for the best fishing up there.Its too warm out.There didnt seem to be any spawning urgency at all.Woulda been neat to meet up with you guys,oh well,next time!
