Amenities

Amenities at Trib to French Creek - French Creek Road include:
    Brook Trout - Fair: Fish the weed lines and head end of riffles for actively feeding fish. Terrestrial insects abundant.
    Brown Trout - Good: Dirty water favors Brown Trout anglers. Increasing terrestrial insect numbers such as crickets, beetles, grasshoppers washing into streams creates a feeding frenzy for brownies.
    Rainbow Trout - Good: A few streams get too warm for stocking Rainbow Trout during the heat of the summer, specifically July and August. This is an annual occurrence. Not to worry. Plenty of fish remain in the streams. Stocking the other streams continues as scheduled.
    Trout streams continue to be stocked every week even if not announced. Most area trout stream current remain elevated. Clarity much improved. Use care when crossing or fishing in faster current.
