On Sunday we had cloudy conditions with scattered rain showers and the temperature reached into the 60's. Over the weekend we had increased fishing pressure which is normal for this time of year. The first weekend in October right through Columbus Day weekend is generally the busiest week of the season. The lower end of the river continues to get the most fishing pressure on a daily basis. If your willing to walk and looking for some solitude the mid to upper end of the river would be a good choice. Overall we got mixed reports from anglers, mostly depended on what section you fished and time of day. Yesterday the majority of anglers we spoke with who fished the DSR reported having a slow day. Other anglers reported getting into some fish around the Black Hole, Town area, Ballpark and Papermill. Anglers who fished the Upper & Lower Fly Fishing Areas reported getting into a mix of kings and cohos with woolly buggers in black, brown and olive producing the best results.
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.
