On Tuesday we had cloudy conditions along with scattered rain showers and the temperature reached near 40 degrees. This may not be your favorite water level, but the river is fishable and anglers are fishing. The drift boats have been taking advantage of the higher flows and floating most of the river. A few bank anglers are fishing the lower end of the river, but the majority of them are fishing the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville. For those anglers who are not comfortable with the current water level, some of the smaller local tributaries are another option. Over the last couple of days anglers who were fly fishing had the most success dead drifting with pink san juan worms and squirmy worms or indicator fishing with egg patterns. Anglers who were float fishing had the most success with pink and blue egg sacs or pink worms. High winds and rain is in the forecast for Wednesday.
