Monday was a cold, wet and damp day with the temperature reaching into the mid 40's. With very little wind and calm conditions anglers said that leaves were not a factor. The anglers we spoke with who fished the lower end of the river and had success covered lots of water. Other anglers we spoke with reported having some action in the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville. Depending on the day anglers have also had success in the Upper & Lower Fly Zone with egg patterns producing the best results.
Egg patterns: Estaz eggs in chart, blue, purple, size 10. Glo-bugs in chart, pink, orange, size 10. Sucker spawn in chart, pink, blue, size 6.
Nymphs: Estaz stones in peacock, brown, chart, blue, size 6. Rubber legged stones in size 4.
Streamers: Black or purple egg sucking leeches in size 4. Woolly buggers in black, olive, brow, white, size 4. Fish skull zonkers in black, white, olive size 4.
