On Monday we had cold and rainy conditions with the temperature reaching 50 degrees for the high. Dry and sunny conditions are expected for today with the temperature reaching near 60 degrees. Yesterday the anglers we spoke with who fished the DSR reported getting into mix of kings, some cohos and a few steelhead with the mid to upper section producing the most action. In the mid to upper end of the river anglers reported getting into fish in and around the Sportsman Pool, above Pineville, Trestle Pool, Ellis Cove, Frazier's Run, and Upper Fly Fishing Area. Anglers also reported having a very good day at some of the smaller local tributaries with a mix of kings and cohos.
