District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report
|Brook Trout - Good: The scientific name for brook trout is "Salvenlinus fontinalis." "Salvenlinus" is an old name for char or type of trout and "fontinalis" means living in springs or fountains.|
|Brown Trout - Excellent: This time of year lends itself to great brown trout fishing. Off colored water and top water insect hatches in the afternoon can really spur a feeding frenzy.|
|Rainbow Trout - Good: Traditionally now is a good time to find rainbow heading upstream to spawn. If you do land a spawning fish, please practice CPR (Catch, Photograph, Release).|
|Most of the gravel roads and accesses are very soft. Insect hatches are really beginning to take off with warmer temperatures. Streams are in excellent condition. Anglers have been taking trout on yellow nymphs, brown wholly buggers, blue wing olives and streamers. Files with a flash of red are also working well. Spin fishers using worms fished through riffles are taking nice catches.|
