On Saturday we started the morning in the 30's and with blue skies and plenty of sunshine the temperature reached into the low 50's in the afternoon. In the morning anglers were surprised to see that the dam release was lowered despite what was previously posted. We got mixed reports from anglers depending on where they fished, some anglers caught fish, while others did not. The anglers we spoke with who landed fish, did so in the Upper & Lower Fly Fishing Area, Pineville area, RT2A area and the DSR. Anglers who were fly fishing had the most success dead drifting or indicator fishing with egg patterns and nymphs. The fish seem to be scattered and not really bunched up, so covering lots of water continues to be one of the keys to success.
