On Saturday we had cloudy conditions and the temperature reached into the low 40's. We got mixed reports from anglers, a few groups we spoke with were able to get into some fish at some of the smaller local tributaries, but the majority of anglers we spoke with who fished the main river reported having a tough time. Winter has returned and as of this morning we had scattered lake effect snow showers along with very high winds and falling temperatures. Over the next day or so we'll be dealing with some cold, snow and high winds, but mid week weather conditions are expected to improve.
