    District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report

    Brook Trout - Fair: With dirtier water, try using woolly buggers, San Juan worms, or other subsurface flies and lures.
    Brown Trout - Good: Brown trout are feasting on terrestrial insects washing into the stream from the storms. Also try crayfish.
    Rainbow Trout - Good: A crappie or bluegill set-up works great for trout fishing. Put a piece of cheese or small piece of worm on a hook under a bobber in a good hole and wait.
    Wild parsnip is at peak bloom now. Use caution when walking through this plant to get to your favorite stream. Make sure to keep your arms and legs covered to avoid nasty blisters. A few streams are not stocked in July and August. Water temperatures tend to get too warm for trout. To find out when your favorite stream will be stocked, please see our calendar on the website or call the stocking number at 563-927-5736.
