February 19 2019
On Tuesday the temperature was below zero first thing in the morning, but reached into the 20's in the afternoon along with sunny conditions. Over the last couple of days slush ice has been a factor first thing in the morning in the lower end of the river but has been clearing around mid day. The drift boats continue to take advantage of the high water conditions and have been floating the mid to upper section of river. The majority of bank anglers have been fishing the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville. Anglers have had some success in the Lower Fly Zone, Schoolhouse Pool, Wire Hole, Upper and Lower Trestle Pool, Sportsman Pool and DSR. For those anglers who are fly fishing the most productive patterns have been wiggle stones, black stoneflies, steelhead hammer, rusher nymphs, woolly buggers and sucker spawn. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing pink and blue egg sacs have produced the best results.
