: Ana River: Rainbow trout are active throughout the year in the river and anglers have been catching fish with bait, flies or lures. The river was sampled on June 5 to evaluate the current stocking strategy and size of trout in the river. We found smaller trout (8 to 10-inches) were dominant from the dam for about 2 miles downstream. Larger trout up to 14-inches are more common in areas were access is more difficult. Anglers can access these trout by floating the river in a pontoon or float tube. Flies that mimic grasshoppers can be quite effective this time of year. Ana River is spring fed and trout fishing remains good throughout the summer. Caddisflies are also common on the river.
