Saturday was another mild day with calm conditions and the temperature reached into the 40's. With the recent drop in water and nice weather it's no surprise we had increased fishing pressure especially on the weekend. The upper and lower end of the river continued to have the most fishing pressure. If your looking to avoid the crowd, mid river would be a good choice. By far the majority of anglers we spoke with reported having a good day on the water. Anglers said it was a great day to be on the water and reported getting into fish throughout the river. With the low water conditions most of the fish were holding in and around the deeper holes and larger runs. Anglers who were fly fishing had success dead drifting with nymphs, indicator fishing with egg patterns or swinging streamers with sinking leaders. The most productive patterns were wiggle stones, black stoneflies, infected pheasant tails, steelhead buggers, egg sucking leeches, steelhead hammer, pink san juan worms, sucker spawn and glo-bugs. Anglers who were bottom bouncing or float fishing had the most success with pink and blue egg sacs or beads.
