> > Are there trout in this stream?

Posts: 1Hey folks, new here, hoping someone may be able to help answer my question here. I’ve found a perfect little stream through state land that I’ve been poking around wondering if fish were in it. Today I saw my first whitefish swimming around in there. I was wondering if this would be a good signifier that trout were also in this stream or if it was possible that there may only be whitefish in it. Is it possible for a spring creek that feeds into a larger river to only contain one species of fish?
Thanks, I can’t stop thinking about this little creek.

Hi Camphammer,

It's nice to hear from you. Where are you? Since you mention you saw a whitefish I'm assuming you live in the Rocky Mountains. Wyoming, Colorado, Montana am I close? It is possible but highly unlikely that a spring creek entering another clean and larger river would only have one species of fish. Try fishing it, try nymphs and look for any rising fish. If you see some rises maybe they are trout.
