Over the weekend we had very mild weather conditions for this time of year with above average temperatures. It was no surprise that the fishing pressure increased as anglers got out to take advantage of the conditions. We got mixed reports from anglers depending on what section of river they fished and experience level, but overall the majority of anglers we spoke with said they worked hard for the fish they got. The upper and lower end of the river continues to get the fishing pressure on a daily basis. If your looking for some solitude the mid section of river would be a good choice. Anglers who were fly fishing had the most success dead drifting or indicator fishing with egg patterns and nymphs. In the upper end of the river natural looking nymphs and pale colored egg patterns have produced the best results. For those anglers who were float fishing or bottom bouncing, pink and blue egg sacs, trout beads or pink worms produced the best results.
