On Sunday we had cloudy conditions with a brief late morning shower, the overnight low was in the 50's and mid day temperature reached into the 60's. The anglers we spoke with who fished the lower end of the river reported getting into a mix of mostly kings with a few more cohos showing up. Depending on when you fished and what section, the best action and fish movement seemed to be in the morning. Anglers in the mid to upper section of river reported fish holding in and around the Sportsman Hole, Pineville, Trestle Pool and Schoolhouse. The Upper & Lower Fly Fishing Areas continue to produce action on a daily basis with mostly kings and the occassional coho in the mix.
