On Sunday we started out in the morning with the temperature in the single digits, but with blue skies and plenty of sunshine the temperature reached into the 30's in the afternoon. The good news is that warmer temperatures are expected over the next couple of days and will provide anglers with a great opportunity to take advantage of conditions. Anglers stopping into the shop reported getting into fish in the upper end of the river in Altmar as well as the lower end of the river at the DSR. Anglers who were fly fishing had the most success indicator fishing with egg patterns or dead drifting with nymphs. Anglers who were float fishing or bottom bouncing have been having success with egg sacs, pink worms or beads.
