Glo-balls, San Juan worms, are legal during C&R.

The hatchery will stock 1000 trout into the river before the opening day of catching release, also they will add 50 trout over 3 pounds into the river also for the fisherman to catch. Good flies to start with would be a woolly bugger or a small streamer of some sort black and yellow is very good, if the weather's decent there will be some nice dry fly fishing in the afternoons, caddis, blue wing olives, Griffiths gnats, para Adams. Good nymphs to use would be pheasant tails, sow bugs, burlaps, copper Johns, and a black or gray zebra midge, should do well also.
