The north arm continues fishing just about as good as it gets. There are very few fish anywhere else. Rainbows, Browns and Cutthroats to 24+" and a bunch of new arrivals 13-14" recently planted by DFW. 'Throw in a few Perch and Tui Chub and the full-five Grand Slam, Rainbow, Brown Cutthroat, Perch and Tui Chub have been managed by several in the last week. McGee is pretty much done for the time being. Occasional fish in close to the weeds but the few fish there are very spread out Some fish still in the Hiltons and Crooked, but not in big numbers. The Perch fry are subsiding and stripping has been pretty slow compared to fishing under the indicator.
