Woods Canyon Lake

Rating - Good   

Sunday, Jul 14 2019
Lake levels are great, having filled from snowmelt runoff in the spring. Woods Canyon Lake is stocked with catchable rainbow trout weekly throughout the summer, with tiger trout stocked in May and July. Try Kastmasters, small Rapalas, Panther Martins, or flies for trout in early summer while water temperatures are still cool. Shore anglers fishing for trout can try nightcrawlers or PowerBait. As summer wears on, water temperatures increase, driving trout deeper towards cooler water. However, the lake stratifies by late June, with only the top 18 feet of water having enough dissolved oxygen for trout. The trout tend to suspend at the 16-18 foot depth in July-August, which is where lures and bait should be presented at that time. Green sunfish were illegally introduced to Woods Canyon Lake and there are no limits on them. Kids can try a small hook with a worm under a bobber during the warmer parts of the day to catch sunfish when the trout arent biting.
