There are a lot of fish in the system, mostly thanks to ODFW keeping up with the stocking over the winter.
There have been really good BWO hatches, some March Brown’s, Midges and a few Caddis mixed in. It won’t be long and we will be full on into the PMD season for summer so be ready for that.
Ant patterns are also beginning to get attention along the grassy banks.
Nymphing has been strong with 2 Bit Hookers, Micro Mayflies, Zebra Midges, Frenchies and Eggs.
I’d rate the Fall as a strong bet for now and throughout the season with ODFW managing it so well. Yep, lots of the fish are stockers (not all) but its better than no fish like it was a couple of years ago.
