On Thursday it was hot and humid with cloudy conditions and was nice to get a break from the sun which helped with fish movement. We had showers move through mid morning and later in the day. The hot and humid conditions are expected to slowly move out of here as we head through the weekend along with chance of showers. Over the last couple of days the few anglers we spoke with have reported getting into kings in the lower end of the river and have enjoyed not having to deal with many other anglers. The most action has been in the normal lower end of the river areas, such as Ballpark, Town Pool area, Longbridge/Staircase, Black Hole and the DSR. You can expect the number of anglers to increase as we go through the weekend which is normal for this time of year.
The fishing in the lake also continues to be good with boats getting into a mix of kings and cohos. The LOC Derby out on the lake just finished up on Labor Day with the grand prize leader salmon weighing 29.13lbs
