CommentsRainbow trout densities were very high near the state HWY 102 and 43 bridges and in the first mile of habitat structures downstream. There were hundreds of trout that appeared to range in mostly two size classes around 2 and 4 lbs. Reportedly there have been over 6000 rainbow trout stocked in the last 3 years. This stream had a remnant population of rainbow and brown trout persisting from state stocking in the early 1990's, but densities are much higher now and are being managed and maintained by private landowners through habitat improvements and feed supplement.
