Generally, April is the month, though as others have said, it varies. Think first week in April... earlier if there's a lot of rain, alter if there's little. A good place to check for updates and reports from the field is http://calphoto.com/wflower.htm.
When the NPS Morning report is available (currently off-line), they list total rainfall since July 1, that's usually the best indicator of how good a bloom it will be.
