View Full Version : Dead trout in American river

Yesterday I was snorkling in the American river near Colfax and I noticed 5 dead trout :-/. The water temperature seemed quite warm I'm hoping the water is not too hot for the trout to survive. I did see several live bass and one larger fish that looked like a carp.

That's too bad :( probably is getting too warm for them. The north fork has no dams up stream from Clementine so there are no cold flow releases. In the upper reaches they'll survive so all won't be lost.
