Daily Report

November 18 2023

On Friday the mild weather continued with cloudy conditions and the temperature reaching into the mid 50's. The rain we got held off until later in the day and into the evening. Dry, sunny and cooler weather conditions are expected for Saturday. Yesterday we got mixed reports from anglers depending on where they fished, some anglers had some action, while others had a slow day, overall the best reports we had came from the mid to upper section of river. Anglers have been getting into fish throughout the river from top to bottom, covering lots of water has been productive and with the increased number of anglers finding some less pressured fish has been another key to success. With the water temperature still in the mid 40's a variety of techniques have been productive. For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifting or indicator fishing with egg patterns as well as swinging streamers with sinking leaders have all produced results. For those anglers who are float fishing or bottom bouncing with spinning gear, pink, blue and chart egg sacs as well as beads have all produced 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.
