(Stocked Area)

Columbia County
June 2004

Area 4 biologists completed a survey on the stocked trout area of Roaring Creek, Columbia County, during the week of June 7, 2004. We found a large number of hatchery trout remaining from an in-season stocking during the week of May 24. Additionally, this section of stream supported some wild brown trout and some browns that held over from the previous years' stocking. Lots of rain and cool temperatures in the summer of 2003 permitted these fish to hold over. The largest one we caught was a 22 inch holdover brown. Trout anglers looking for some late season stocked trout fishing opportunities would be hard pressed to find a better stream. Angling pressure was light during the week of our survey.
