Picky trout during the flow drops!

Capatain Justin Thompson checked in today and said they had a 32 fish day catching and releasing wild rainbow trout today.  The bead bite was off, but the bug bite picked up the slack making for a fun day on the river.  Justin mentioned we're spoiled here in Redding when a 32 fish day doesn't seem like a hot bite.  I agree that we're spoiled, but fortunately our clients don't have a problem with only catching 32 fish in a day.  It can be an amazing trip for sure and we'll be hitting the river hard in the Redding area until our King salmon season opens in mid July.  Thank you!
