July 22nd Main Lake Water Temp. 78 Degrees
The Lake elevation is 3778.83 and the storage is 151,000 acre feet. The Lake has risen 2.76" in the past week. The Main Lake is clear and the Ute and the Canadian are stained.
Fishing pressure is light and the bite is slowing down.
Walleye-Jigging with Nightcrawlers or Leeches is producing some Walleye. Pulling Spinners tipped with 'Crawlers is also turning a few fish. They are most active at 20 to 30 feet.
White Bass-Most of the Whites we heard about this week were caught trolling with Cranks that dive 10 to 15 feet.
Bass-Topwater very early or very late in the day is the best bet. There are a few Bass hitting plastics fished in and near brush. Craws and Jigs are a good choice.
