Daily Report

December 22 2020

Monday was a nice day for anglers to get out on the water and take advantage of the mild weather conditions. The wind was light and variable and the temperature reached into the mid 40's with mostly cloudy conditions. The above average temperatures for this time of year are expected to continue over the next couple of days. The upper end of the river in Altmar and the lower end of the river at the DSR continue to get the most fishing pressure on a daily basis. If your looking for some solitude and willing to walk the mid section of river would be a good choice. The fish have been holding in and around the normal winter holes and larger runs. Anglers who are fly fishing have had the most success dead drifting with natural nymphs or indicator fishing with pale colored single egg patterns.  For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, pink and blue egg sacs, trout beads or pink worms have all produced results.
