Williams Fork Lakers

Thinking of heading to Williams Fork Saturday to jig for Lakers. Any guidance on what area/depth to start at? It's been years since I've been up there.

This time of year they could be anywhere. Best bet is to use the fish finder to locate them and target that way-IMO.

1) Find a spot where the lake goes around a corner or frow wide to narrow and can "concentrate" the fish a bit.
2) 40-80' is a great depth, and in general I'd start at 70'
3) Reel up to anything in the column. If it is midwater, it is feeding. Period.
4) If you want company up there LMK with a little more notice and maybe I can make it up as well, but I am busy this weekend.

We were there last weekend, and had good success between 75'-90', SLOW jigging within an inch or 3 from the bottom!

Good luck!

HC Out!
