We would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. The shop and motel will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and will reopen on Friday November 27th. Yesterday the temperature reached into the mid 40's and we got very little of the rain that was in the forecast. The mild conditions are expected to continue as we head into the holiday weekend. Over the last couple of days anglers have been getting into fish in the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville as well as a mix of browns and steelhead in the lower end of the river. Anglers who were fly fishing had the most success dead drifting or indicator fishing with single egg patterns or nymphs. Anglers who were bottom bouncing or float fishing had the most success with pink and blue egg sacs or beads.
