April is transition month – transition from river to lake fishing.
This year, April showers came in March which led to spikes of higher than normal water on our local rivers. Lately, the rivers have been in good shape and producing Steelhead and Bull Trout. Keeping a close watch on the levels is the key to finding the rivers in good shape. The Steelhead run is in and bright fish being have been caught in the last few days. We have also been catching very large Bull Trout. They are large enough (six to eight pounds) to make us wonder just what we have on the end of our lines. Typically, the rivers blow out for good towards the end of April and early May. The last few days of clear(ish) water are usually the best of the winter/spring Steelheading.
Our lakes have been fishing well too. We usually fish these lakes in a progression from low elevations to high as the spring and summer progress. The same is true in the fall as we move back to the lower lakes as the temperatures drop. Trout are active when the water is cool and can be tough to move when the water temperature gets warm. Green and black leeches on a slow retrieve have been doing the trick.
Our guides are keen to take you to their favorite spots and will tailor a trip based on your experience level. Rivers are tough to fish with little previous experience. However, lakes can be fished by anyone willing to give it a try. Whatever your experience, this is the time to get out there.
