On Monday we had some colder conditions with the temperature struggling to reach 30 degrees. The colder conditions are expected to continue for another day, but warmer weather conditions are expected for the upcoming weekend. The anglers we spoke with who fished the lower end of the river reported getting into fresh fish. In the upper end of the river anglers reported getting into fish between Altmar and Pineville as well as the Lower Fly Zone. The anglers who were fly fishing had the most success dead drifting or indicator fishing with egg patterns and nymphs. Anglers who were bottom bouncing or float fishing had the most success with pink and blue egg sacs or beads.
