fished granby this morning and me and my brother caught about 50 or so rainbows on lures, spawn sacks, worms, and salmon eggs we moved to dam 3 trying to find macs no luck , most of the trout were stockers but i caught afew pushing 16 inches
We fished Granby a from 8:30 to 10:30 Friday night, and then again from 6:30 am till 11:00 am Saturday morning. We over nighted on the boat (2 kids and 2 adults - crowded!), plus my friend mark slept in his SUV. We woke up to 3/4 inch of snow but everyone said they stayed warm.
Back to the fishing. We caught two lakers on tube jigs Friday night in Columbine bay, and Saturday morning we caught 8 lakers (the limit - 3 adults and two kids) trolling 3-4" spoons and J13 Rapalas. The red and silver or yellow and silver spoons, and a rainbow rapala worked best. We caught all the fish trolling along shore lines in less than 30 feet of water. The last 20 minutes before we had to leave we tried casting for a rainbows in the Colorado river inlet. We caught one stocker.
I thought that was you we were coming up the ramp as you were going in.
Friday afternoon we fished from 430 til 730 I caught 5 Rainbows will my buddy was tieing on his lure caught to many to count after that silver cleo was the ticket also sile and orange kastmaster caught one nice koke 18 "
Next morning caught rainbows and 2 lakers on sucker meat.
Bigbrown and got of the lake just as gale force wind hit.
Pete told me it was probably you I saw friday evening when we were putting in. I was kind of looking for your boat Saturday morning (you said to say hi), were you fishing the CO inlet? - there was a red lund back there catching fish.
We used sunset. The concrete blocks had a little sand on them but other than that it was fine. I don't know what the ramp at stillwater is like. I thought I saw it from the water, if I did it was high and dry.
Great news on Grandby guys!! I can always count on Grandby for action...........just wish it were a bit closer...........but if it was there would be way too many people on it. I always do well with the lakers on 3 to 4" spoons ........Cleos..........blue and silver trolled deep. I never have boated anything larger than 22 " but I`ll keep trying. One thing I`d like to improve on is rainbow and brown action. I`ve heard of worm and bobber action but I hav`nt tried it yet. Don`t know where to start there. I`ve also heard mentioned PB ........... Do you leave it on the bottom or do you suspend it............and at what depth?? Inspiration Point is almost always mentioned along with the mouth of the Colo River inlet. Has anyone flycasted from a boat??
I`m going to brave the weather Wednesday, I`ll be in a 17' SeaNymph all silver aluminum boat.....usually with the Bimini up. Stop by and see me. Thanks for the steerage !! Jeff "Racer"
