Fishing will start picking up as the water warms this spring

Chewaucan River - Valley Falls, OR (Lake County)

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Fishing will start picking up as the water warms this spring. Once the relatively high flows pass it will be a great time to target redband trout. Cast spinners across and downstream and slowly work them through deeper riffles and lower pools. Some of the best way to cover water is stripping flies or hanging beadheads under indicators. The bag limit is 2 fish only one of which can be over 20 inches.

Check the Oregon Water Resources Near Real Time Streamflow website for current flow information.
