District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report
|Flows are up on many streams after last weeks rain but clearing and very fishable. Scattered hatches of caddis flies, Hendrickson's, and blue wing olives have been observed. Anglers have been taking trout on #14 caddis flies and #16 or #18 Hendrickson or Adams. One of the key's to a successful catch is to match the size of the fly with the critter hatching. Spin fishers using spinners or hair jigs fished through riffles are taking nice catches.|
