“If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there’d be a shortage of fishing poles.”
The recent cooler weather is helping to maintain spring-like fishing conditions. The water has not warmed enough to send fish to deeper and cooler water. This is good news for anglers even if the few windy days we have had did make for some tougher fishing conditions.
The last of our local streams opened this past weekend. Those are the tributaries to Almanor, Butt and Lake Davis. The late opener allows plenty of time for spring spawning rainbows to complete the cycle of regeneration without being interrupted by anglers. The other noteworthy opening this past week is the channel below the powerhouse on Butt Lake.
