Check the river flows. If the outflow from Keno is under 1,000 cfs, fishing could be good and you should toss big, black, weighted flies, such as Rubber Legs or Woolly Buggers . Dead-drift them past boulders, current seams, and any place the water slows. If the water below the Boyle powerhouse is fishable, try salmonfly nymphs such as Kaufmanns Stoneflies . This section is rich in spotted caddis larvae, so check out Jeff Morgan's article Caddis Larvae--Part I for some hot patterns.

For more information on April fishing, see the Rivers section of the General Oregon Report
