On Thursday we had a mix of sun and clouds along with some cooler weather conditions. The early morning temperature was in the upper 40's and the afternoon temperature reached into the 60's. The fishing pressure increased as anglers already started arriving for the upcoming weekend which is normal for this time of year. The anglers we spoke with who fished the DSR reported a steady pick throughout the day with a mix of kings and cohos. The mid to upper section seemed to produce the best action. Other anglers reported having some action in the Town Pool, Ballpark and Papermill. In the upper end of the river anglers reported some fish holding in and around the deeper holes. If your willing to walk the mid to lower section of the river has not been getting as much pressure as the lower end and would be a choice good if your looking for some solitude. Anglers who have been fishing the Upper & Lower Fly Fishing Area reported getting into mostly kings along with a few cohos.
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.
