The family and I just returned from camping a few days at Stillwater on Lake Granby. Saturday we fished two hours around noon at Quinette Bay and caught some stocker trout and two lakers (c&r) from shore on PB and Trout Nibble nuggets. My youngest daughter, Caitlin, caught her first laker ever.
I've only visited Lake Granby for four years, but it is by far the lowest level I have seen. I fished from shore so I don't know if boat ramps are open. I do know, however, that I saw very few boats using the lake. Iím not a boater, so maybe someone else can clarify this. I did see that there was a land bridge open from the Highland Marina office out to the nearby island, and the marina boating activity was operating from there instead of the main office on Hwy. 34. It appeared that they were possibly shuttling people from the office a few hundred yards to the temporary marina via ORVs, and I saw that cars were parked out on the island as well. The place I fished was over 50 yards farther out from the usual shoreline at Quinette Point.
Ive seen the lake lower more than once. Its common for the 2 northern marinas to operate like that when the water is this low. Ive seen beacons docks darn near at the point of elephant island. Lack of boaters is is most likely due to colder water temps as well as the weather. Thats changing quickly.
