February 17 2018
On Saturday we started out the morning in the teens but in the afternoon the temperature did reach into the 30's. In the lower end of the river slush ice was a factor in the morning but did clear around mid day. The fishing pressure did increase which was no surprise especially on a holiday weekend with low water and nice weather. The upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville had the most fishing pressure. The mid section of river is a good choice if your willing to walk and looking for some solitude. The majority of anglers we spoke with after coming off the water reported having a slow day. A few anglers did report having some success but overall it was a tough day for most. The best reports we had came from the Lower Fly Zone and the lower end of the river. Anglers who were fly fishing had the most success while dead drifting with nymphs or small single egg patterns under a strike indicator. Anglers who were bottom bouncing or float fishing had the most success with egg sacs or pink worms.
