Wednesday was another very mild day with cloudy conditions and the temperature reached into the mid 60's. The heavy rain held off until later in the day and evening, with heavy rain moving through our area it's no surprise that the dam release was increased, please check safe waters for the latest update. Yesterday we got mixed results from anglers, some groups got into fish, while others reported having a tough day. The drift boats are taking advantage of the high water conditions and covering lots of water while getting into drop backs scattered throughout the river. The majority of bank anglers have been fishing the mid to upper end of the river in the softer seams along the edges, side channels off the main river or some of the smaller local tributaries.
