    Does anybody spin cast there. I dont want to piss anybody off . Just want to go for trout not salmon or steelhead. I dont fly fish and I never go for salmon in the rivers. Just wondering if anyone ever has trout luck there.

    Don't worry about pissing people off man, as long as you are within the law/regs other people can bugger off with their opinoins LOL. There are gorgeous cutthroat in that river, small marabou jigs, small pink worms on a jig head are pretty effective worked with a light spinning setup.

    Should be sea run CT of many of the beaches now. They will be pounding the salmon fry coming out of the rivers. Fly patterns that imitate such are the ticket though they are suckers for small crocodile spoons. Please be gentle with those little gems. There really isn't that many of them. They are quite vulnerable.

    It's closed to apprx 35m below the hatchery fence, there's signs (or there used to be) indicating the boundary.

    Remember - single barbless hook only. And the entire river is closed upstream from the hatchery.
