On Tuesday we had cloudy conditions with a few spotty showers and the temperature was in the low 50's. Anglers reported that the water clarity had improved from the previous day and that the runoff was coming down. Anglers stopping into the shop reported getting into fish throughout the river with areas such as Upper & Lower Fly Zones, Ellis Cove, Sportsman, Ballpark, Town Pool, Longbridge/Staircase and DSR all producing action. Other anglers we spoke with reported getting into mostly kings in some of the smaller local tributaries.
