Latest fishing report

Anglers report good fishing. Most of the fish caught are in the 18- to 21-inch range. Recent gillnet surveys show good numbers of rainbow trout in this same size class. Most were feeding on chironomids, but some included sow bugs, scuds, worms, eggs and shiners. Fly anglers are doing best with nymph or egg patterns. Also, Matt Warner is one of three locations for the Fishing With The Fox contest that starts Memorial Day weekend and ends August 15. You may catch tagged fish now. If you catch one with a blue 'WIN 2018' tag, email for directions on how to get registered with your tagged fish. (Last update 05-18-18)
