Thursday was another cold day with the morning temperature in the single digits and reaching into the 20's in the afternoon along with some sunshine. In the morning slush ice was a factor in the lower end of the river but cleared in the afternoon. Mild weather is still in the forecast for the upcoming weekend and with the drop in water level we should see an increase with the number of anglers. Over the last couple of days the few anglers we spoke with have been fishing the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville. For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifting with nymphs has produced the best results. Anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing had the most success with blue egg sacs or beads.
