Thursday was another cold day, in the morning we started out in the upper 20's but in the afternoon the temperature reached into the 40's. We got mixed reports from anglers, but overall the majority of anglers we spoke with reported getting into some steelhead. The upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville is getting the most fishing pressure on a daily basis. The last couple of days have been dry and the runoff has slowed up, so some of the smaller local tributaries has provided anglers with another option. Anglers having success on the main river have been covering lots of water while fishing along the edges and inside seams. For those anglers who are fly fishing, egg patterns, woolly buggers and egg sucking leeches have produced the best results. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, blue and pink egg sacs or trout beads have produced steady results.
