On Monday we had warm and sunny conditions with the temperature reaching into the mid 70's. Well above average temperatures for this time of year are expected to continue over the next couple of days. The anglers we spoke with who fished the DSR reported having the best action first thing in the morning in the mid to upper section with mostly kings. Other anglers staying in the motel and stopping into the shop reported having some early morning action in the Ballpark area, RT2A area, above the Sportsman, Upper & Lower Fly Fishing Area. Over the last few days anglers have been getting into mostly kings along with a few cohos. The upper and lower section of the river continue to get the most fishing pressure on a daily basis, if your willing to walk and looking for some solitude the mid section is a good choice. If you put your time in and cover water you'll find some fish.
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.
