At what time of year, generally speaking, do rainbow trout in Interior Lakes spawn?

I've found around here that you start pulling in really eggy fish in late june. Although, I am usually in high elevation lakes.

Go to the inlet,outlet streams of a lake, if they aren't barricaded you will generally see fish , they are there spawning.Generally a bad idea to fish around such inlets ,outlets as the fish there could be preparing to spawn or are kelts having just come back out of the creek.From May to June typically depending on elevation.

spawning

I have caught numerous spawners this year. They all seem to be spawning early, right about now is approx. normal, but I have been catching spawners for well over a month now. Has anyone else noticed all of the early spawners?

I was also wondering if trout are programmed to "postpone" their spawning ritual if the water is too high and muddy like most streams are right now.
