On Thursday we had scattered lake effect snow showers in the morning with sunshine in the afternoon and the temperature reached into the 30's. Mild weather conditions are expected for today with the temperature reaching into the upper 30's. Over the last couple of days the water level continues to be high. This may not be your favorite water level, but the river is fishable and anglers are fishing both from the bank and drift boats. The majority of bank anglers have been fishing the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville, but a few are fishing the DSR as well. The drift boats are taking advantage of the higher water and floating most of the river. The most productive areas have been the Lower Fly Zone, below the Altmar bridge, Schoolhouse Pool, Wire Hole, Upper & Lower Trestle Pool, Pineville, Sportsman Pool, Black Hole and DSR. For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifting with nymphs and single egg patterns or swinging streamers has produced the best results. The most productive patterns have been wiggle stones, rusher nymphs, black stoneflies, woolly buggers, estaz eggs and sucker spawn. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, pink and blue egg sacs, beads or pink worms have all produced results.
