Trophy trout were stocked 6/3/22 - Nice surprise for the weekend crowd. DFW will be stocking next week and the following week as posted on their web-site. 

BAIT: Worms, powerbait, and mousetails.

LURES: Red/gold Buoyant 1/6th oz, GOLD LURES (any kind).

FLY AND BUBBLE: Not happening right now, but soon.

FLY RODS: Streamers,  mainly olive woolly bugger BHprince nymph, and emergers. Bring it all, close your eyes and pick something. Tie it on and you'll probably do well. You will not have a problem catching, although it may be small, it's a trout, and it's a heck of a lot of fun.

BACKCOUNTRY: Not much news this week and can only go by what I saw on two of the lakes and that was lots of rising fish so a good hatch must have occurred up canyon before the cloud cover last week.

NOTE: If the trout bleeds don’t throw it back into the lake, it will die. If you care about the resource please be careful when releasing fish back into the water and IT ATTRACKS BEARS.
