Daily Report

December 11 2022

On Saturday anglers were pleasantly surprised to see that the water had dropped down to a 750cfs release from the dam. We had calm weather conditions with mostly sunshine and the temperature reached into the mid 30's. We got mixed reports from anglers depending on where they fished and experience level, some anglers had a very good day, while other anglers had a tough day. We currently have fish spread out in the river from top to bottom. In the lower end of the river anglers have been getting into fresh fish along the edges and softer seams of the transition water. In the upper end of the river the fish have started moving into the normal winter holding areas with a mix of fresh fish and colored up fish. If your willing to walk and trying to avoid other anglers the mid section of river would be your best choice. For those anglers who are fly fishing a variety of techniques are working, dead drifting with nymphs, using a strike indicator with egg patterns or swinging streamers with sinking leaders have all produced results. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, pink and blue egg sacs or beads have been producing steady results.
