This river is open year-round to fishing, and with winter right around the corner, trout are going to want to fatten up beforehand. Flows are still in excellent shape and the summer crowds are gone. Fly-fishing techniques work very well here, but bait is also allowed. Flows are currently around 600 cfs where it flows into Detroit Reservoir and dropping. Trout are stocked throughout the summer months.

Anglers may keep up to five trout per day. Remember, this section of river is closed to salmon fishing.
