**** Anglers and biologists report a fresh run of STT moved into Trail creek with fish jumping at the barrier and DNR passing 71 fish upriver on Trail Creek. Fresh fish were noted in the E and W branches of the Little Cal also. Spawn bags drifted just off the bottom through the deeper runs & pools followed by shrimp are the top producers. Orange, brass & silver spinners also caught aggressive fish in the same areas. Lots of activity over the weekend and a very strong run continues with fish found throughout the major watersheds.
