On Thursday we had mostly sunny conditions with the temperature reaching into the mid 70's in the afternoon. The majority of anglers we spoke with fished the lower end of the river between RT2A and the DSR with a mix of kings and cohos. Anglers reported early morning action in the normal spots such as Ballpark, Town area, Staircase/Longbridge and Black Hole. We got mixed reported from anglers who fished the DSR, it mostly depended on what section you fished and what time of the day. Anglers reported not as many fish as the previous few days but were able to get into mostly kings with some cohos. The best action seemed to be first thing in the morning. In the afternoon I drove the river and checked the public access lots and were starting to get a few more anglers fishing in the upper end of the river.
Yesterday the boats were able to get back out on the lake and they fished the deeper water where they could find temperature. The coho action slowed down but they were able to get into plenty of kings.
The motel dates have been changing by the phone call and were trying to keep them updated. Just because you don't see the date listed your looking for, keep in mind that the person who literally called right before you did could of been making a change. When in doubt it's always best to call just to see if anything opened up or ask to be on a waiting list for a specific set of dates.
