Fishing Info:

    As long as there is enough water flow to support them, rainbow trout are stocked here by the DFG from late Spring through Summer. The plants start from Bouquet Reservoir downstream approx. 9 miles to Texas Canyon.

Comments and Tips:

    This is a very small creek with some portions as narrow as 3 feet across at times. For this reason, easy limits are common, but it also gets fished-out quickly. The best time to go is within 3-4 days after a DFG plant. Also, because of it's size, lures and artificials are very difficult to fish here. The best outfit to use is an ultra-light spinning rod baited up with live crickets, worms, or salmon eggs.
