    District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report

    Brook Trout - Good: Now is the time to use small terrestrial flies such as crickets, grasshoppers, and ants. Please respect private property open to angling. Pick up trash. Be considerate.
    Brown Trout - Excellent: Excellent evening mayfly hatches. A keen eye and a fly box filled with a variety of sizes and colors will help match a hatch. Fish along grassed edges, undercut banks, and around boulders.
    Rainbow Trout - Excellent: Hoppers, beetles, and anything that looks buggy will work this time of year. Use hair jigs, spinner baits, small shallow water crankbaits for aggressive fish.
    All trout stream stockings unannounced for the rest of the year due to COVID-19 precautions. Anglers seeing good evening mayfly and white fly hatches. Take advantage of the cooler weather and explore a new stream.
