Daily Report

January 05 2024

On Thursday the warmest part of the day was in the morning and throughout the day the temperature dropped and during the night we had another dusting of snow. For the last several days the release from the dam has been 750cfs and pineville has been around 1040cfs, which is generally and all round good flow, still enough water for the drift boats but easier for the bank anglers to move around. The upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville has been getting the most pressure on a daily basis. If your willing to walk the mid to lower section of river would be a good choice if your looking for some solitude. With the current water level look for fish to be holding in and around the deeper holes and larger runs which are the normal winter holding areas. For those anglers who are fly fishing, dead drifitng with nymphs, indicator fishing with egg patterns or swinging streamers with sink tips or sinking leaders have all produced results. For those anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing, egg sacs, beads, marabou jigs and pink worms have all been productive.
