Daily Report

April 08 2019

Over the weekend we finally got some mild weather conditions and Sunday was the pick day with the temperature reaching into the mid 60's. Rain showers did move through during the night and early this morning but sunny and mild conditions are expected for the afternoon. With the mild temperatures and recent rain keep an eye on the water level because we still have melting snow coming off the Tug Hill. The upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville continues to get the most fishing pressure on a daily basis. Anglers have been getting into fish in both the Upper and Lower Fly Fishing Zone. With the high water bank anglers have also been getting into some fish in the diversions and side channels of the main river. For those anglers who are not comfortable with the higher water, some of the smaller local tributaries is another option. Anglers who are fly fishing have had success dead drifting with nymphs and egg patterns or swinging streamers with sinking leaders. The most productive patterns have been estaz eggs, sucker spawn, glo-bugs, squirmy worms, black stoneflies, egg sucking leeches and woolly buggers. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, blue, pink or chartreuse egg sacs, trout beads, pink worms and jigs have all produced results.
