The sun was barely rising over a nearby ridge as Mike Nicholson climbed out of his red pickup truck and pulled on a new pair of waders and his boots at the Mokelumne Fish Hatchery Day Use Area on Wednesday. Nicholson set up his 9-feet-long fly fishing rod and fixed a nymph, or sinking fly, to his line.

"I hope there's some steelhead," Nicholson said. "If not, I'll catch little rainbow trout out there."
