Over the weekend we had fall like weather conditions with nighttime temperatures dropping into the 40's and daytime temperatures reaching into the upper 60's. The fishing pressure increased which is normal for this time of year especially on the weekends. In the lower end of the river anglers reported getting into small pods of mostly kings along with the occassional coho. The most fish movement has been first thing in the mornings or later in the day once the crowd thins out. Over the weekend anglers we spoke with who fished the Lower Fly Zone reported having plenty of action with mostly kings. In the mid to upper section of river kings have been holding in the deeper holes such as Schoolhouse, Trestle and Sportsman.
