On Sunday we had blue skies with plenty of sunshine and the temperature reached into the 40's. Overall we got mixed reports from anglers, some groups got into fish, while others had a tough day. The anglers we spoke with who fished the lower end of the river reported having a slow day. The few anglers we spoke with who fished the upper end of the river reported getting into some fish in Altmar. 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.
