The Skwala’s on the Owyhee are starting to wind down. If we are lucky, the bugs will stick around for another week or so. The fishing this spring on the Owyhee has been one of the more consistent springs we’ve had, with the exception of the weather mudding up the river for part of one day. This is the time of the month we need to watch the water levels. Usually, around April 15th the dam raises the water level to help the farmers so they can start their irrigation. When this happens it tends to knock the fish loopy for a few days and fishing can be very tough.
