TROUT FISHING NEXT TO JLP

By , January 18, 2009 4:05 am

On my quest to catch native and/or wild trout on all of the streams in the Angeles National Forest I was led to the Arroyo Seco Canyon. It can be reached by taking the 210 freeway to Windsor/Arroyo Canyon Dr. follow the street north. There will be a parking lot on the left hand side, and the trail head will be to the right. The California Department of Fish and Game stocks here down by the first and second bridge. Though I don’t think that this Creek has gotten one stock yet this season. We did not see any fish until about 2.5 miles back and I caught a couple of Natives out of the Dam areas. In one hole I caught 3 small bows, and within 10 minuted there were people throwing rock and running into the water. Please if you hike this trail DO NOT THROW ANYTHING INTO THE WATER OR PLAY FETCH WITH YOUR DOG ON THE STREAM!!! All in all a decent sized stream and a nice little hike. The fishing is probably really good after DFG stocks the water a few times. Remember Catch and Release native and wild fish, and if you take stocked fish only take what you are going to eat. Remember to take out any trash that you bring in.

    Yeah. As you can tell by the photos these are fish. The DFG stocks from the first bridge in early spring to late fall. There are also Natives from about 3 miles back into the trail. If you want more info check out my post labeled Aorroy Seco Canyon Creek on the main blog page under locations.

    I just fished there yesterday and caught a couple but they didn’t seem too interested in any of the fly’s I had to offer. What did you use?
