On Tuesday the water release was up and down like an elevator and we only spoke with a few anglers. The majority of anglers held off and were waiting to see what happens with the water conditions. The few anglers we spoke with who did make the trip fished the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville with limited success. A couple of the groups we spoke with got into some fish, while others did not. Yesterday afternoon and last night we had scattered lake effect snow showers and picked up a couple inches of new snow.
