Spinner fishermen are relying on the Super Duper, the Lil Cleo, other small spoons and Rooster Tails.
Bait fishermen are favoring meal worms, Power Bait and Power Worms, salmon egss, and corn.
Fly fishers are having fantastic results with pheasant tails, Copper Johns, zebra midge, brassies, red midge larva, olive and brown buggers just to name a few.

This report brought to you in memory of Smokey the Great Trout Scout. Long live his memory and long live Blue River.
The Smoker can't use a cell phone to call Operation Game Thief but when he sees poachers doing what they do he certainly wants to take a bite out of crime. It is both unethical and a violation of wildlife rules, not to mention what it does to the whole of the outdoor community, to poach or go beyond established rules. So, help the little trout scout with a snout out by plugging into your cell phone the number to Operation Game Thief - 1-800-522-8039. You'll feel dog-gone good about it.
SCOUTING THE BIG WATERS NOW
