On Saturday the temperature started out in the low single digits, but with blue skies and plenty of sunshine the temperature reached into the mid 20's in the afternoon. With the temperature in the single digits slush ice was a factor in the lower end of the river. Over the next couple of days the temperatures are expected to improve and slush ice should not be a factor. The majority of anglers we spoke with fished the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville where slush ice was not a factor. Anglers have been getting into fish in the Lower Fly Zone, Schoolhouse Pool, Wire Hole, Trestle Pool and Pineville. For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifting with nymphs or indicator fishing with single egg patterns has produced the best results. The most productive patterns have been steelhead hammer, rusher nymphs, wiggles stones, prince nymphs, steak-n-eggs, hare's ear, black stoneflies, steelie omelet and estaz eggs. For those those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, pink and blue egg sacs, beads and pink worms have produced the best results.
Monday - Saturday 6:00AM - 6:00PM.
