    Fishing Summary

    Stream-reared brown trout are sustained through a once-per-year stocking of fingerling brown trout. This fishery is entirely on private property and landowner permission is required for access. Stocking has been suspended for 2011-2013 to assess if brown trout natural reproduction is occurring. Due to private ownership of this stream, no map is available.(2012)
