We finally caught a break with the weather and were getting a mid week warm up for a couple of days. This will give a few more anglers a chance to get out on the water and take advantage of the conditions. Over the last couple of days anglers have been getting into fish in the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville. With the recent drop in water level the fish have been holding in and around the deeper and larger runs. The Lower Fly Zone, below the Altmar bridge, Schoolhouse Pool, Wire Hole, Ellis Cove, Bovines, Trestle Pool and Pineville is where most anglers have been fishing over the last couple of days. Anglers who are fly fishing have had the most success indicator fishing with single egg patterns or dead drifting with nymphs. The most productive patterns have been wiggle stones, rusher nymphs, steelhead hammer, black stoneflies, steelhead buggers, estaz eggs, steak-n-eggs and glo-bugs. Anglers who are float fishing or bottom bouncing had the most success with blue egg sacs, beads and pink worms.
