Last week, the electroshock survey was completed. There were 4 from the NGPC, myself, Mike & Nanci Adams present. Just a preliminary report pending the final review of data.

A. At The Islands: Phenomenal numbers of trout, both browns & rainbows. Healthy, all class sizes and some sizable trout.

B. At The Barrels: Excellent numbers of trout, both browns & rainbows. Healthy, all class sizes and some sizable trout.

C. Footbridge Reach: Upwards of 100 trout caught, all Rainbow. Essential 2 sizes, young of year or older (large) trout. So. it appears this reach is a nice nursery for YOY with sufficient woody debris to overwinter. Also, it provides several primary holes for big trout to lay low during the low summer month flows. Phenomenal numbers of dace and crawdads, great sustenance for trout. Needless tosay, we missed many YOY as well as some of biggest trout.
