ASF seeks native trout evidence in upper Arroyo Seco

Screen Shot 2019-03-09 at 4.33.23 PM

The trout are back! After a long dry spell recent rains have created excellent conditions for trout recovery. We want to document the presence of native Rainbow Trout in the Arroyo Seco. It will build a good case for improving stream and habitat conditions in the Arroyo Seco, a key tributary of the Los Angeles River.

We would like to enlist some enthusiastic scouts to search the upper reaches of the Arroyo Seco stream to find native trout there. The upper stream is accessible from trails off of Angeles Crest Highway. ASF can provide information about likely sites and proper procedures.

This will be a very signifcant and exciting project for fishers and Arroyo lovers to participate in. If you are interested or want to report a sighting, please send a message to fish@arroyoseco.org.

    1. Hi John, you can start at Red Car Park, then work your way up under the bridge. There are good holes and eddies; if you go downstream from Red Car, there’s a really big hole, but it’s more for spin fishing. Good luck, Jim
