The bite has been pretty good on the upper river for wild rainbows and planted trout. The most recent plants were this week and two weeks ago. The hatchery fish are best on salmon eggs or crickets for the planters, especially in the bigger holes and runs. Still light fishing pressure. In the lower river, flows are very low. In addition to the trout at the plant locations, there has been a fair catfish bite, mostly on nightcrawlers, and the smallmouth action is finally starting to improve.

Early morning at the fishing hole was greeted with frost on the grass. It was cold! Grandson caught his first fish almost right away. Second came shortly after. His one trout was almost 3lbs! Slowed for a bit but saw fish feeding so we moved down about 20 yards and caught a couple more. Used mini crawlers and switched from #6 to #8 hooks and he had better luck hooking up. Put in about 2 hours of fishing. No other anglers out fishing. Put in an hour picking up trash around the banks of the river and the parking area. If my 7 year old grandson can pick up trash you think the adults that are leaving it could do the same?
