The water coming out of dexter is about 49 degrees as of yesterday . Way too cold . Ok for steelhead , cold for springers . Youd be better off near jasper ,springfield bridge or i5 bridge if you are bank bound . Oddly enough the McKenzie is lower and warmer than the willy at this time of year.
I will be there at 4:30 Friday morning- look me up and I will give you so tips
That's where I caught my first springer! Give it time - it warms up in June and will be more productive once more fish come over the falls.
Unfortunately they moved the deadline downstream so my favorite spots are no longer legally accessible. But that place is too combatty for my taste!
