Bass fishing is done here as the weather turns and the water cools into the 40’s. Fishing is good for 10 to 13-inch trout at the collection ditch which was stocked with approximately 7,000  trout in October.  Water level in the collection ditch has improved and large browns and tigers are on the prowl at the end of the fall spawn.  Small brightly colored spinners were doing well. Anglers need to switch to sub-surface flies such as leech patterns, wooly buggers or crystal buggers.  Other flies working include the usual small nymphs such as PT’s, hares ears, olive soft hackles, red or blue copper Johns, prince nymphs and egg patterns.  In the crystal, clear water of the collection ditch, if you can see the fish, they can see you.  Go low, slow and wear drab clothing.
