Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Fishing is hot in the cool weather because of the increased trout activity. Anglers should consider trolling both shallow and deeper waters or drifting traditional trout baits off the bottom.

Stream fishing for brown trout is great this time of year using streamers, nymphs or spinners.
