TROUT: WISCONSIN: Most Brule River rainbows have dropped back into Lake Superior; stream L, C, FP except for brookies in evening. OP.
COLORADO: Almost all streams in state H, D but FF/G with bait and spin-lures. Last week's leading lunkers were 10�-pound brown from Seaman Reservoir (on wobbler spoon), 9 pound rainbow from Roaring Fork River (on worm) and 8�-pound brown from Blue River (on wobbler spoon).
IDAHO: General SO June 4 and FG on all trout waters in eastern Idaho's Island Park area; streams are clearing and fly-fishing excellent on North Fork of Snake; hot spot is Henry Lake around Staley Springs (but back roads are muddy). In western state, North and South Forks and main Payette FG with bait and spinners but main Salmon and all tribs H, D, OP. In northern state, Bear, Priest, Hayden and Coeur d'Alene lakes in fine shape and productive, but area streams H, D.
OREGON: High-country lakes SO May 28 but best areas still under 4-8 feet of snow. Crane Prairie Reservoir getting big play but FP/F as snow runoff clouds and chills water. In general, season is very late, weather unsettled and OF/G.
MASSACHUSETTS: Deerfield River spy says L, C, FF, with dries and nymphs but even experts going fishless between dawn and dusk; OF through June 15.
WASHINGTON: On eastern side of state, Curlew Lake FG, OG with occasional lunkers reported; Pierre Lake excellent but fish are smaller; FG, OG in Buffalo, McGinnis, Sage, Wapalo, Spectacle, Parrygin and Bumping lakes, Methow and Naches rivers. On west side, Cushman is top producer for silver trout; Big Beardslee giving up occasional 10-pounders on spoons or plugs fished deep; Skamania County lakes and streams FG, OG.
CALIFORNIA: Despite snowpack runoff that roiled most streams an estimated ?-million anglers turned out for Memorial Day weekend and many took limits on bait and spinners. SO May 28 for Del Norte and Humboldt counties and Eel River drainage, with streams murky but FF and OG. With Tioga and Sonora passes open, fishermen flocked to high lakes and creeks in Yosemite Park and Leavitt Meadows country (where hikers got best waters and easy limits); OG for this area, with peak of fishing June 15, barring storms. Most streams in north of state H, D. Bucks Lake is hot, with browns and rainbows to 9 pounds; Boca. Donner and Bear River reservoirs spotty but OF/G. Best lakes on east slope are Crowley and June, Bridgeport Reservoir; best stream is Owens River at Birchim Canyon and Chalk Bluffs.
NEW MEXICO: Red and Cimarron rivers H, D, FP, OG. Rio Grande River H, FF/G with woolly worm flies, OG.
PENNSYLVANIA: All streams in Allegheny Forest and northern-tier counties still L, C, in need of rain. Tionesta Creek from Kellettville to Warren County line was producing on wets and dries last week (including 20-inch rainbow on marabou streamer, near Truman), and new rainfall should perk up this area; Oil Creek above Titusville had fine Light Cahill hatches last week, and outlook is good. Although Pine Creek's gorge produced some heavy browns last week, most "tier" streams are critically low and warm, with trout moving into spring holes and up tribs. FP except early morning and OP. In central state your best bets are Big Spring and Letort in Cumberland County, Lost Creek in Juniata County (but this is "chalk-stream" fishing, with bonus trout for expert nymphers).
