    District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report

    Trout streams are in excellent condition and continue fishing well. Anglers please be aware this weekend is second shotgun deer season so make sure to wear alot of orange. A spinner or crank bait will catch trout.
    Brook Trout - Good: Use flies or lures that look like sculpins, dace, or suckers.
    Brown Trout - Good: Anglers have had success using a nymph rig with a scud dropper but most fish were hitting wet flies.
    Rainbow Trout - Good: Anglers can find Rainbow Trout hiding in the upper and lower ends of pools. Dance a meaty looking fly or lure in these areas and wait.

This stream is entirely on private property and requires landowner permission to access this fishery. Due to private ownership of this stream, no map is available.(2012)
