Trout Stream Opener
The trout stream opener last weekend was great…for kayakers. The abundant spring runoff made it a tough go for anglers. Most streams were running very high with low water clarity.
A week ago I listed a few of the streams I thought might be fishable despite the high water levels. One of those was the North Fork of the Feather River above Chester.

A huge crowd of over 2,500 spectators were in attendance at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for the 71st annual Cal Poly Rodeo, and the FRC rodeo team made their presence known. The men’s team continued their domination of the West Coast Region, extending their lead in the regional standings, while the women’s team ended up second for the weekend behind Cal Poly but putting some distance between itself and rival UNLV.
Trout stream season opens April 30, Kayaking likely better than fishing
The official opening of the trout stream fishing season has always been one of my favorite spring rituals. That may have more to do with the promise of things to come in the coming weeks than it has to do with the actual fishing that weekend.
Let’s face it, the season opener usually means high flows and off-color water. With so much rain and snow this year, it is likely to be worse than normal.
