WOOD RIVER (including Petric Canal): redband, brown, brook and bull troutThe Wood River remains slow for brown trout. The river is brown due to runoff on Sun Creek and Annie Creek. Water temperature will be cold; therefore, it is imperative that lures and flies are fished deep and slow. Most brown trout feed near or on the bottom this time of year. Fishing below Weed Rd is best.During high flows brown trout gorge on earthworms. Since bait is not allowed artificials that mimic worms like the San Juan Worm fly might work. Brown trout also feed on sculpin, stoneflies (golden and salmonflies), sucker eggs, mice, cased caddisflies and clam shrimp this time of year.There are good hatches coming off right now including pale morning duns, salmonflies, black drake mayflies, and large Ametropus mayflies. Brown trout will key in on these hatches in certain areas. For Brown Trout the best section to fish is above Crooked Creek from boat. Fishing near Fort Creek might also be productive. Bank access is available below Weed Rd and at the USFS Day Use Area. The day use area is typically very slow this time of year and improves during grasshopper season in July and August. The best bet from shore is below Weed Rd.Most large redband trout caught this time of year are spawned out kelts. Please handle them carefully. Large redband trout are beginning to move into the river. Bull trout are becoming more common in the catch. Know the difference between brook trout and bull trout.
