    District-Wide Trout Stream Fishing Report

    Brook Trout - Good: When fishing private property open to angling, leave that property as was or better by picking up trash. Close gates if you opened them. Be considerate.
    Brown Trout - Good: Off-color water turns on brown trout. Use hair jigs or spinners for aggressive fish.
    Rainbow Trout - Excellent: Stocked fish and hold-overs biting well. Use a worm or cheese floated through a pool under a bobber. Use an ultra light pole and reel for some fun action.
    All streams are being stocked and stockings are unannounced until further notice due to the COVID-19 virus. Use this time to get some fresh air and explore a new stream. Hatchery grounds are open to the public but feeders and other conveniences are temporarily closed for prevention precautions. Hatchery visitors give workers space and observe distancing rules.
