What to Expect in April
Hatches divided by half-month.
Super Major Minor Slight None
Winter steelhead will continue to be available for the first two or three weeks of the month, if water conditions permit. Use indicator tactics with Egg Flies or Big Birds , or swing flies with traditional tactics. Check the Dodge Bridge gage: anything over 3,000 cfs is high water.
On the Holy Water, the blue-winged olive hatch is petering out, but midges should be hatching. You can also pick up fish on streamers, especially when there is no hatch. Trout fishing in the mainstem closes April 1, but remains open in the Holy Water.
For more information on April fishing, see the Rivers section of the General Oregon Report
