Daily Report

December 18 2023

Sunday was another mild day with windy conditions and the temperature was in the mid 40's. The majority of anglers we spoke with reported having another good day throughout the river. Sunday night the rain moved in and is expected to continue throughout the day on Monday, so it's no surprise the dam release has been increased. As heavy rain moves through our area, keep an eye on water levels and check conditions before making the trip. 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: Steelie omelette in size 10, 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: Prince nymphs in size 10, Hare's ear in size 10, Pheasant tails in size 10, Flashback nymphs in size 10, Steelhead hammer in size 12, Beadhead stones in size 10. Rusher nymphs in size 10.
