On Wednesday anglers were dealing with the increased water flow and significant runoff from the previous days rain. The lower end of the river was running high and dirty from the recent rain. We got mixed reports from anglers, some anglers opted not to fish because of conditions, while went anyway and made the most conditions. Most anglers headed to the upper end of the river in Altmar where you had the least amount of runoff and best visibility. The anglers we spoke with who fished the lower end of the river, especially those who went to the DSR reported having a very good day. For sure it was difficult landing fish in the higher water, but anglers reported that the action was very good with lots of fish on the move. With the high water bringing fresh fish into the river and spreading them out from top to bottom along with a stretch of dry weather, conditions are coming together nicely.
