April 15th Fishing ReportA chance of flurries after 2pm. Sunny, with a high near 34. Northwest wind 5 to 11 mph.
Still chilly today, but it looks like the last cold day for a bit. Nights are still chilly, so no real reason to get up early to fish. Look for the best fishing to start around 10 and hatches to come off in the afternoon.
Before the cold snap we had midges, olives, spring stone, and a few caddis hatching. Expect the caddis hatch to strengthen and the others to slow down a bit in the next week. Add some craneflies to the mix this week and we have the recipe for some extremely fun dry fly afternoons!
Subsurface fishing is good on pretty much anything. Flies like the purple drink, coulee scud, and soft hackles (materials with movement and collars on the fly) are great right now to mimic hatching caddis and craneflies.
Streamers and leeches are now going to always be effective, but even more so when the sun is off the water.
Creeks are clear and running pretty normal for spring. Temperatures are in the 40s.
