April 10 2018
On Tuesday we had some snow flurries in the morning, but we did get some sunshine in the afternoon and the temperature reached 40 degrees. Over the last couple of days the cold weather and high water has cut down on the number of anglers on the water. Either way the river is still fishable, we have fish and the few anglers who are fishing have had some success. The drift boats have been taking advantage of the high water and floating most of the river. The majority of bank anglers are fishing the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville as well as the side channels and diversions. For those anglers who are float fishing, blue egg sacs, pink worms and beads have all produced results. Anglers who are fly fishing have had success dead drifting with stoneflies, squirmy worms or woolly buggers. Egg patterns such as glo-bugs or sucker spawn fished under a strike indicator has also been productive. Some warmer weather conditions along with rain showers are in the forecast for the remainder of the week.
