Granby Shore Fishing Advice

Post By: PHILH      Posted: 5/7/2020 3:12:20 PM     Points: 18    
Hello! If one were to shore fish Lake Granby in the coming weeks, what should he try as far as structure and bait/lures? For lakers and/or other trout species?

Or do you suppose the other lakes in that area may be worth trying?

The FS closed the gates and put up barriers/signs at most of the day use parking areas now. They had been open and being used until the last couple of days.

Rapalas, crank baits, swim baits work well for lake trout. Spinners, small jigs with a mister twister and tipped with meal/wax worms and good old fashion worms work for browns/bows. As shmiley pointed out, the FS got weird all of a sudden and closed off parking and access in some spots. You might have to park and walk a little further but you can still get out and enjoy the day. Make sure to practice your "social distancing" to not give anyone a reason to hassle you!

Thanks guys. Should I generally be looking at sharp drop-offs this time of year?

I talked to a couple FS folks at Stillwater last week and they said they were going to try and open the ramps by today which is before the announced May 15 date. I saw they had hazard markers set out already. Anyone know if the ramps opened early?

They did not open the ramps. The 15th is the current date for stillwater and sunset, along with most other ramps at other waters.

Can anyone confirm that the boat ramps opened? The FS website for Stillwater and Sunset still say closed. Thanks!
