+1 to the informative public service potential of the post...

I know at least one person who learned about redds, where and when to expect them, from reading this board last year.

To expand on that point...

What's a good estimate for when it becomes safe to wade again?
(when you can see trout fry + a few weeks to let stragglers hatch? )

Do the eggs and fry typically stay in the redd where laid, or get moved around by shifting substrates? I guess it depends on storm / flood events.

I think i read that a typical hatching time would be 40-50 days at or just below 50F.

Maybe someone can make a simple statement like:
"the safest thing to do is to stay out of the water, or if you must, wade only in rocky sections, until at least the end of January"

Simply make signs like this one...and stake it threw their foot.

Great reply Foxgap239 , I may have seemed a little harsh but our resources are dwindling everyday. We have to police our own,if we see something that will adversely effect our sport we have a right to educate said person,newbie or old stick. It's up to us to make sure what we have now our grandchildren will have for there children,and if it means hurting someones feelings,so be it.

I like that sign, it would be a great reminder and for those that don't know it would prompt them to ask.

Now I really don't get that. Why would people take "Fishing Permitted" signs? Do you think they are taking them to post them elsewhere where fishing isn't permitted?

It could be one of his neighbors who doesn't like the public invitation. Osprey, maybe you should ask the people who own the farm.

But in any case, I hate signs. They just muck up the view.

They take them because they can. When I was a "Ute", I collected road signs, signs warning to not collect or take the rocks (but they didn't warn to not take the sign that said to not collect or take the rocks), etc. Of course, now being a bit older and maybe a bit wiser, I use a little bit more discretion. The only signs I will harvest now are those that are down. The very first thought I had when I saw the spawning trout sign is that it was a sign that someone would steal..

So last year I stopped fishing from abt oct 15th – dec 15th and this year haven’t been out since October. I’m looking at this picture (and not questioning anything) and see nothing red in the h2o tho it is far and not great quality ...… w/out having to start a new thread in the beginner forum what exactly should/would I be looking for?

You can see the redd very plainly in the pic if you enlarge it, but if it were me I'd have shown the redd to him. You guy deserved a dunking and he shouldn't be fishing in the fall.

A redd is just a place where the trout lays its eggs in the gravel. It has nothing at all to do with the color red, so you don't look for that.

What you look for is bright patches of gravel that have been turned over to form a hollow to lay the eggs in.

The bright colored gravel will show up against the general background color of the rocks on the streambed, which is often olive-brown from the algae etc. that coat the rocks.

You will often see the trout on the redds, especially late in the day, when the sun is heading for the horizon.

If you Google "trout redds" and click Images, you can find some photos.
