Opening day on the Deschutes is only a few short days away. On April 22nd the entire 100 miles of the Lower Deschutes will be OPEN!!!
The Skwala's on the Owyhee are starting to wind down. If we are lucky, the bugs will stick around for another week or so. The fishing this spring on the Owyhee has been one of the more consistent springs we've had, with the exception of the weather mudding up the river for part of one day. This is the time of the month we need to watch the water levels. Usually around April 15th the damn raises the water level to help the farmers so they can start their irrigation. When this happens it tends to knock the fish loopy for a few days and fishing can be very tough.
