Daily Report

March 26 2019

Tuesday was another cold day but with blue skies and plenty of sunshine the temperature did reach into the mid 30's in the afternoon.  We got mixed reports from anglers, some anglers reported hooking and landing fish, while others had a tough day with no success. The majority of bank anglers are fishing the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville and this section continues to get the most fishing pressure on a daily basis. Most of the fish in the upper end of the river are holding in the deep water in and around the gravel areas. At this time of the year it's normal for the fish to be staging in these areas as they go through the spawning process. In the mid to lower end of the river were still getting a few fresh moving through as well as some fish that have already finished spawning. The peak of spawning has not yet occurred, but keep in mind it's also not uncommon to have a few drop backs at this time of year either. Over the last couple of days the most productive patterns have been black stoneflies, wiggles stones, steelhead stones, rusher nymphs, woolly buggers, egg sucking leeches, sucker spawn, estaz eggs and glo-bugs. Anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing have had the most success with egg sacs, beads and pink worms.
