Comments

One true fresh spring fish was taken for the month for a total of 63 rod days.
A number of other fish which were judged to be springers were hooked but not landed.
The most outstanding feature of the month was the huge number of extremely well-conditioned kelts in the river after what has been reckoned to be one of the best spawning years since the 1960s.
Also very notable was the almost complete lack of any signs of disease.
This is remarkable with the huge head of spent fish present in the river.

Comments

Fishing began to pick up towards the end of the month as the floods in early March subsided.
The catch was actually quite good from the 25th. when one considers that there were few rods fishing the river.
