Early season fishing on Wickiup has been fair for both brown and rainbow trout. Fish are spread out and finding them can be a challenge. Fishing drop-offs both stripping streamers and leeches have been productive. Once fish are located, fish are being caught with chironomids and balanced leeches. Be aware that Wickiup was extremely low last summer and fishing may have been affected by this.
