Odell opens on the 22nd. I doubt any ramps expect to open other than the 2 lodges.
Until I see snow completely gone from the road cam I wont be looking to head that way.
Most likely Princess Creek wont open until mid May.
Should be a early jigging thing and then troll around the 1st week of June
Paulina might be open after the road opens May 10th but theres a lot of snow up there.

Thanks for the update. I thought it was open year round. Do they not ice fish like on Diamond? The roads looked bad this weekend.

Oregon Regs. have layers, like an onion...or a parfait. General Statewide, then Zone, then location specific Exceptions. and then there are the updates and mid-year regs. issued for Ocean Salmon and Halibut, Fall Salmon, Ground fish....yep, they got layers!

Some years ago I can remember layers of fish to use all those regs on ..... now we just pick up a copy of confusion every year!

I'd love to see a phone app that could "unpeel" all those layers based upon your input such as your location (GPS) and desired fish target. Open the app, type in "trout" and see what you can do. Sure would make my life easier :)
