No native trout in the Caney. There might possibly be a few brook trout that make it through a spawn but that is not likely. The brown trout will go through the motions but the spawn does not work on the Caney. You can go to Happy Hollow in the fall and watch them go through the motion. They will come out of the water straight up like a missile and shake the roe out but it is all for nought...the river conditions are not right for the spawn to work. Make no mistake though...the Caney is full of big trout.
