It's already been a fantastic week of weather, but yesterday was the pick day of the week with plenty of sunshine and the temperature reached into the mid 70's. The very mild conditions are expected to continue right through the weekend. With warm and sunny conditions during the day and well above temperatures at night the water temperature has been on the rise. As of right now we currently have a mix of spawning fish holding in and around the gravel areas along with fish that have completed the spawning process and are dropping back. Those fish tend to hold in the faster water of the bigger holes and larger runs. For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifting with egg patterns or swinging streamers with sinking leaders has produced the best results. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, pink and blue egg sacs, beads or pink worms has produced the best results.
