Monday was another beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and the temperature reached into the mid 60's. The mild weather conditions with well above temperatures are expected to continue right through the week. With the warm weather its no surprise the number of anglers getting out to take advantage of the conditions has increased. We continue to get mixed reports from anglers depending on where they fished and experience level. Anglers who are covering lots of water and willing to adjust to the conditions are having the most success. The upper and lower end of the river 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 Lower Fly Zone, Schoolhouse Pool, Trestle Pool, Wire Hole, Ellis Cove, Pineville, Sportsman Pool, Town Pool and DSR have all produced action. Anglers who are fly fishing have had the most success dead drifting with nymphs and small woolly buggers or indicator fishing with egg patterns. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, pink and blue egg sacs, pink worms, marabou jigs or beads have all produced results.
