On Wednesday the weather pattern was more of the same, overnight lows around 50 and the daytime temp's reaching into the upper 60's with mostly sunny conditions. The anglers we spoke with who fished the lower end of the river reported having another good day while getting into mostly kings along with a few cohos in the Ballpark, Town Pool, Longbridge/Staircase, Black Hole and the DSR. In the mid to upper end of the river anglers reported getting into fish around the RT2A area, Sportsman Pool, Pineville, Trestle and Altmar. The Upper & Lower Fly Fishing Areas have been producing steady action on a daily basis with a mix of kings and cohos.
