Over the weekend we had one extreme to the other with the weather. On Saturday the temperature was below zero in the morning and struggled to reach into the 20's in the afternoon and on Sunday the temperature was in the mid 30's along with a combination of rain and freezing rain. Keep an eye on the weather, heavy lake effect snow is expected for Monday and coldest temp's on the season for Tuesday. Over the last couple of days anglers have been having success in the normal winter holding areas such as the Lower Fly Fishing Zone, Schoolhouse Pool, Wire Hole, Trestle Pool, Pineville and Sportsman Pool. For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifting with nymphs or indicator fishing with egg patterns has proudced the best results. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, pink and blue egg sacs and beads have produced the best results.
