Even though surface water temperatures are above 70 degrees, trout fishing is still pretty good. It appears that the trick is the color orange. Several groups of anglers have had good luck fishing either early in the morning or fishing deeper using orange rooster tails, spoons or minnow imitations. Bait fishermen should use the usual worms or PowerBait for trout. Sherbet PowerBait seems to be the ticket, though other colors will still work. Fly rodders should be trying chironomids, hares ears, PT’s, damselfly nymphs, damsel adults, mayflies and wooly buggers. The campground and fish cleaning station are open and on a first come first served basis. Wildhorse has been stocked with approximately 80,000 trout this year!
