Rainbow trout good on in-line spinnerbaits, midges, nymphs and PowerBait along channels, river channel and rocks. Peach and pale green garlic scented PowerBait has been the bait of choice for bait fishermen. Egg patterns along with flies that have rubber legs have been the top producers recently for fly-fishermen and women. There has been a hatch going on in the late afternoon to produce some action on dry flies and emergers. When fishing with lures and bait make sure you are using light line, 4-6 pound test. The clear water makes it super easy for the fish to see fishing line and leaders, so I would recommend downsizing.
