> > Be sure to take some small hooks 6 or 8 and also a can of corn. As you know the trout eat any small fish or lure but remenber that the trout are stocked and are used to being fed. I have caught trout of corn every time i used it. If the water is high fish towards the banks if the water is low fish the currents. good luck. P.S. keep the beer out of site


Be careful with the corn. Especially if you pass into the artifical areas below Hwy 20 bridge. Don't throw away excess corn into the river, if a trout eats too much corn it will die. They can't digest the vegetable carbohydrates and it kills them either by diarrheas or fermentation in the stomach.
