Anyone fish the blue yet this early season? Last couple of trips I have made there prove to catch nothing but baitfish no trout. Anyone else have this problem is it still a productive trout stream?

There's so much fishable water in the Blue, it would be impossible to generalize. You could (and should) spend days exploring. Be assured that there are plenty of trout in the blue.

I fished the Blue on Friday. Caught five Browns and one large Rainbow on the upper part of the river. Talked to a guy further downstream and he said he had done well.

There's miles of public access on the Blue and lots of water to explore. As a result, it does get a lot of traffic, but you can almost always find a spot to fish. I've fished it for over five seasons now, and last fall I had an excellent day - both in numbers and size.

If you are catching those shiner type baitfish, you can catch trout in the same areas based on my experience. I have thought of throwing a big streamer to imitate those baitfish and hope to catch a big trout. If you move further upstream, you will likely not catch as many, if any of those baitfish.

That's what I was thinking my I would try out this year. I have had succes off Snowbottom in the past but I might go further upstream this season.
