As the season is ramping back up, I've been doing a little research lately and was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on this -
Obviously Trout, Grayling, and Dollies don't winter (at least in any kind of numbers) in the parks streams, but where do they go during that time? And when do they start moving back into those systems and why?
Also, you see much larger populations of trout in some of these systems during salmon runs because obviously they are following the food source, but what brings the resident fish there before that?
Have any studies been done on numbers, etc? I haven't found much info on local trout movement in my search.
Thanks in advance for any input!
