"This is about as tricky a river as you’ll find on the Central Coast. Located in a steep, brushy gorge, it is nearly impossible to fish early in the regular trout season because the river swells with runoff. This Monterey County fishery is located near Salinas and not too far from the heavily populated Silicon Valley. The river runs by a popular campground and receives lots of fishing pressure, even though this section of the river is off limits during the general trout season. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping." Read more
