On Monday we had calm and sunny conditions with the temperature reaching into the mid 60's in the afternoon. It was a beautiful fall day to be on the river but the majority of anglers we spoke with reported having a slow day. In the lower end of the river anglers reported that the best action was first thing in the morning and later in the day once the sun was off the water. Anglers having the most success are covering lots of water while focussing on the transition water and dead drifting with egg patterns has produced the best results. In the upper end of the river anglers have reported getting into some steelhead between Altmar and Pineville. Most anglers have transitioned over to steelhead mode, but if your still looking for kings the gravel areas in the upper end of the river is your best bet. The most productive fly patterns have been sucker spawn, estaz eggs, glo-bugs, flesh fly, steelie omelet, egg sucking leeches and woolly buggers. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, blue and pink egg sacs, trout beads and pink worms have produced the best results.
