500 rainbows and 20 lunker rainbows, scattered from right below the park to Curry Bridge, so that is about 3 miles of water, I went down this

morning and caught one of the lunkers it was about 5 lbs, and most were 3-4 pound trout, and the 500 stockers were of 12-15 inches.

Started to spit sleet and ice, so I left, but there should be a few down thru there for awhile, till the bait fisherman find out and get in there and

catch most of them, it happens all the time.

Eagles will eat some :)

Otters will eat some :)

Remember browns still have to be 15" or longer to keep, but who would eat an old nasty brown, I heard they taste like an old sock :)

Curry bridge is about a mile lower than the prior crossing.

hey Tim I have a hard time following all the C &R stuff down there. is zone 3 catch and release this time of year or catch and keep? or is it just the area down below the park? or is the area below the park still zone 3? everything past that dam confuses me.

Let the summer of Carp, begin.

zone 3 is off limits from nov 1st-to the end of febuary, catch and keep march 1st-oct 31st

from the bridge (below the dam) is closed till the end of feb. this area is over a mile long,

great fishing sometimes, but during the winter season it is closed, the parking area on

F hwy is the place to start(conservation parking lot) walk to the water, straight down the hill, and

follow the river downstream, don't go upstream or you'll be in the park, and breaking the law :)

I've never done that of course :) but if you did it might be good fishing, but the 200$ fine

stops most people from trying, most people :)

okay thanks Tim I really appreciate the info, one more question though. What is the reason to make that section of the river off limits?

also I had a question not relating to this I sent It to you in a PM though.

Let the summer of Carp, begin.

I don't know why, but it has been closed in the winter as far back as I can remember
