Thursday was another mild day along with wind and rain and the temperature reached into the upper 40's. Despite the tough conditions the few anglers we spoke with managed to have some action both in the upper and lower end of the river. The anglers we spoke with who fished the mid to upper end of the river reported getting into fish in and around the deeper holes and larger runs. For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifting with nymphs or small streamers and indicator fishing with egg patterns. Anglers who were bottom bouncing or float fishing, egg sacs, beads, pink worms and marabou jigs have all produced results.
Nymphs; Steelhead Hammer, Rusher nymphs, Prince nymphs, Rubber legged stones, Beadhead stones, Pheasant tails.
Eggs; Sucker spawn, Estaz eggs, Steelie Omelette, Glo-bugs, Steak-n-eggs.
Streamers; Woolly buggers, Conehead muddlers, Egg sucking leeches, Zonkers, Stonefly buggers.
