Sunday was a chilly day with the temperature in the 40's along with cloudy conditions. With calm conditions and very little wind leaves were not a factor. The anglers we spoke with who fished the lower end of the river reported having a slow day overall. The anglers we spoke with who fished the mid to upper end of the river reported getting into steelhead. With the water temperature still in the 50's, the fish have been holding in the faster water. As of this morning wide spread rain was moving through the area along with colder conditions.
