Portland April 1-3

Can anyone tell me about the fishing opportunities near Portland the first part of April ? Any recommendations for guide service? Would like to get my girl into a fish. Thanks in advance

Early April is usually very good fishing

April is a fairly amazing month hereabouts. High in the watersheds of the Sandy and Clackamas will be winter steelhead. Nearer their mouths will be summer steelhead. And spring Chinook will also be coming in (although the run would be just beginning). I would recommend getting guides from The Fly Shop in Welches - they know the rivers and the fishing very well. Myself, I would back-bounce kwikfish or similar for Chinook in the slower water you'll row through and get out and swing the runs for steelhead. Call Mark Bachmann at The Fly Shop.
