HI Trout Fishing Waters

Hawaii has limited trout fishing. The only recorded trout are rainbow trout, which are now in Kōke‘e Public Fishing Area.

Pure cold water is key to survival of the trouts and the water in Hawaii streams, ponds, lakes and rivers is typically too warm for all but the rainbows. Even for the rainbows conditions are marginal at best
