March 18 2018
On Sunday the wind finally stopped blowing and we got some calm conditions which anglers greatly appreciated. First thing in the morning the temperature was in the single digits but we did reach near 30 degrees in the afternoon. With the cold early morning temperature, slush ice was a factor in the lower end of the river but did clear around mid day. The majority of anglers we spoke with reported getting into fish both in the upper and lower end of the river. Anglers who were fly fishing in the upper end of the river had success with squirmy worm flies, wiggle stones and black stoneflies either dead drifted or under a strike indicator. Anglers who were bottom bouncing or float fishing had success with blue or pink egg sacs, pink worms or beads. Over the last couple of days depending on whether it was the upper or lower end of the river, anglers have been getting into a mix of fresh fish as well as colored up fish. The best action has been in and around the deeper holes and larger runs.
