    Marching in the Rain

    Joel La Follette - Thursday, March 26, 2015

    While March is displaying a slight lion like departure, the adverse effects on angling opportunities have been minimal so far. We’ve seen bumps in river levels as weather systems move through, but those have been quickly followed by steady drops producing great conditions and a few fish. Steelhead anglers will just have to watch their weather rocks over the next few weeks and make plans accordingly.

    Coastal catches are winding down, but here in the valley things are picking up. Spring on the Sandy and Clackamas offers some of the best Steelheading of the season as anglers spread out to other fisheries. It’s still Steelheading, and you may get wet, but at least that bit about frozen guides and frosty eyebrows has passed.

    Those who have started their early spring Trouting have reported decent hatches of March Browns on the Deschutes and McKenzie when conditions are conducive to that emergence. Cloudy skies and warmer temps maximize these occurrences so excuses for missing work should be kept near at hand. A lunch meeting that goes from 11:00 till 2:00 would provide enough time to close the deal and still make it back for that 3:30 conference call. They’ll never know you are still in your waders.

    We are still weeks away from any Big Bug activity on the Deschutes, but that craziness will be here soon enough. Toss out that old leader and tippet material and take stock of those bulletheads in your box. Their day is coming.
