On Friday we had fall like conditions with overnight low's in the 40's, but with blue skies and plenty of sunshine the temperature reached into the upper 60's in the afternoon. The majority of anglers we spoke with who fished the DSR reported having a good day while getting into mostly kings along with a few cohos in the mix. The anglers we spoke with who fished the opening of the Lower Fly Zone reported having some action with mostly kings. In the mid to upper end of the river anglers have also reported kings holding in the deeper holes such as Schoolhouse, Trestle and Sportsman.
