April 6th Fishing ReportA slight chance of showers and thunderstorms before 4pm, then a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 5pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 77. South wind 6 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
Creeks are low and clear with temperatures in the low 50s.
The hot weather over the past few days put the water temperature into the perfect zone for transitioning into spring. We have seen midges, olives, and even some caddis hatching. While this activity might slow down a bit with the cooler and cloudy weather, the fishing should stay strong as trout finally get a bit of cover from the sun with the cloudy days forecasted.
Fishing has been quite good starting with leeches or nymphs first thing in the morning. Focus on the shin to thigh deep water below the riffles right now as fish are getting into position early to move into the riffles to feed. After mid day (ish) fish will push up into the shallower water to feed on hatching bugs when they are present. Nymphing or swinging soft hackles in the riffles can be excellent. Watch the riffles closely as trout will rise to caddis dries in the broken water when they are hatching.
