Harrison Pass is open!  In addition, Secret Pass will be closed on Sunday, May 5 as a railroad crossing is installed on SR 229.  Other than that, not much has changed here as fishing continues to be good at the collection ditch for 13 to 18 inch trout with the occasional large trout being taken.  Small brightly colored spinners were doing well.  Wet flies have been performing better than the dries right now.  These include the usual small nymphs such as PT’s, hares ears, olive soft hackles, BWO emergers, red or blue copper Johns and prince nymphs as well as egg patterns in orange or pink.  Wooly and crystal buggers in black, purple or olive are also working.  In the crystal clear water of the collection ditch, if you can see the fish, they can see you.  Go low, slow and wear drab clothing. Dredging of the Collection Ditch is completed.  The South Marsh was recently stocked and fishing at the boat ramp has been good for stockers with an occasional larger fish as well as a few bass.  The water temperature here was 54 degrees on Wednesday. While boats aren’t allowed on the South Marsh until June 15, float tubes are.  Fishing should be good from a float tube as you head down the main channel.
