TROUT: COLORADO: Statewide fishing has tapered off chiefly because most rivers and creeks remain H and R. FF/G in lakes and reservoirs, however, especially Granby, Shadow Mountain, Skagway, Taylor and Eleven Mile reservoirs and Grand and San Cristobal lakes.

BRITISH COLUMBIA: FVG almost everywhere throughout interior with trout coming well to fly and troll. Limit catches plentiful in Peter-hope, Glimpse, Le Jeune, Paul, Knouff, Kelly, Skaha and Horse rivers. Most effective flies are Grizzly King, Green and Grey Sedge, Black Gnat. FVG also in coastal lakes, with lower Campbell best bet. Interior OVG; coast OG.

VERMONT: Despite excellent conditions, angling pressure light. Spy can advance no reasons for lack of anglers, as record number of licenses were sold. New Haven River, an excellent fly stream, reports a mere handful of casters. OVG for rainbows on Lamoille between Morrisville and Hardwick and in Wolcott section. Rainbows active for spin-fishermen on lower Winooski River. Lake St. Catherine hotspot for lakers.

WASHINGTON: Ross Lake SO Sunday, June 30, not July 1 as incorrectly listed in regulations. Warm weather has not quieted all west-side lakes. Sutherland, Crescent, Leland, Crocker, Summit, Lawrence, Spanaway, McIntosh and Cushman remain steady producers.

PENNSYLVANIA: Letort Springs Run, once one of state's most famous trout streams, has staged comeback, is now hottest spot in central state. One knowledgeable veteran has found Grey Jeffrey flies most effective there. Below Brandtsville Dam on Yellow Breeches, he advises that Black Gnat will give action. OG.

MONTANA: Salmon fly hatch expected soon on Madison River, where best fishing of season will be found until July 10 when hatch ends. Madison C, and FG below Ennis. Best lake is Tiber Reservoir near Shelby. OP for large rivers except Madison until mid-July.

NEW HAMPSHIRE: Warm weather has brought in top fly-fishing of season in White Mountains and remainder of north country. In far north, upper Connecticut River between North Stratford and Beecher's Falls, and between first Connecticut Lake and Lake Francis, producing both rainbows and brooks, with Light Cahill and Adams most effective flies. Hutmaster of Appalachian Mountain Club reports ponds in Millsfield-Erroll section providing excellent fly-fishing. Southern streams L, but still producing for early morning and evening fishermen.

CALIFORNIA: Check following north California streams for fine June angling: Upper Mad and Van Duzen rivers, north fork of Yuba, Merced below El Portal, Kings below Big Creek, Tule River, all forks of the Kaweah. Smaller creeks of Butte county, L and C, are best of season. FVG in Owens River at Pleasant Valley Dam on east slope of Sierra.

TUNA: NEW JERSEY: First school tuna of year taken at week's end some 50 miles southeast of Manasquan Inlet. Fish to 50 pounds were boated, and OG.
