Where are some good fishing spots on Granby? Also what kind of jigs/bait are people using? I went up there for a tournament and caught nothing in 2 days.

Fished Granby Sunday Iced 7 at the boat dock on gidzits and suckermeat. Group total 23 fish nothing big 16 to 20 in. Action from 6:30 am to 8:00am was hot they were slamming the bait. Was working 2 poles until 1 got sucked down the hole, so if anyone catches a fish with a rod and reel combo attached it's mine!!!!!!

I was up a week ago, and there is plenty of ice I would expect 2 - 3 weeks before ice starts to come off. Beacon Landing Marina could give you some real time info. , don't have a phone # though. Give them a call they are great people.

watch the ice on the south end of the lake they are pumping water in from willow creek and with the temps in the 40s up here it will be starting to honey comb up especially if you have atvs or sleds

Hey Bigbrown, with the water pumping in, do you think that attracks alot of fish to that area? I don't know how close I'd get though. A trout ain't worth that much! ;)

Fished Granby Sunday. Got a late start ( around 11). Caught one 17in. laker. Son and I left around 2, got some skiing in . Ranger came by, taking a creel survey, said in was slow everywhere, and all season, for that matter. Could be my last time on the ice this season, bummer!

Does anybody know the current ice / open water conditions at Granby? Is shore fishing still possible, and if yes, is it everywhere or only somewhere? I guess that this big and deep lake will freeze late.

I would guess its starting to skim over on th edges. Call budget tackle at (970) 887-9344 to find out, or wake up Bernie... I'm sure he is sleeping in a lot these days!

I was up last Saturday and it was getting ice around the edges. There were some sheets of ice forming in Arapahoe Bay. Surface temp everywhere was from 33-36 degrees. I heard tyoday that Rainbow Bay has a skim of ice, too. I'm betting it will be mostly frozen this weekend, but not thick enough to walk on yet.

Budget tackle said that ice has begun to form in coves and cutthroat, arapaho, rainbow bays but there are still some areas accessible for shore fishing. They think that once formed, the ice will not go away even in relatively warm weather. Perhaps in 2 weeks time we can start thinking aout icefishing.

It's almost there! One of the first placest to freeze, is the cove at Dike 3, and that's where the kokanee are! 8)
A late edit...last year, about this time, looked like I was first on the ice by dike3, fishing for kokes,...in about 7 feet of water, looked down the hole, and the macks were everywhere, swimming, searchng,...
