As far as the weather goes, Wednesday is the pick day for the remainder of the week. The temperature is expected to reach into the mid 30's, after that a cold front moves in with another blast of arctic cold for the next several days. The few anglers who have been around on a daily basis have been focussing on the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville. In the upper end of the river the fish have been holding in the normal winter holding areas, such as Lower Fly Zone, Schoolhouse, Wire Hole, Ellis Cove, Trestle Pool and Pineville.
