Over the weekend we had increased fishing pressure from what we were seeing during the week which is normal for this time of year. Anglers started rolling into town Friday afternoon for the weekend and Saturday had the most pressure. Sunday was busy in the morning but slowed down with the rain in the afternoon with anglers heading for home or coming off the water to watch the NFL. Overall the action slowed up from what we had during the week, with less anglers and fresh fish moving through the lower end of the river anglers we able to have some really good action last week. Then the weekend arrives, the number of anglers increases significantly, the fish are now scattered and spreadout and it makes for tougher conditions. In the lower end of the river anglers reported slow fish movement with mostly kings. In the mid to upper end of the river anglers reported fish holding in and around the deeper holes and larger runs. Some anglers got into fish, while others did not, it all depended on where you fished, time of day, did you cover water, experience level, etc.
The motel dates have been changing by the phone call and were trying to keep them updated. Just because you don't see the date listed your looking for, keep in mind that the person who literally called right before you did could of been making a change. When in doubt it's always best to call just to see if anything opened up or ask to be on a waiting list for a specific set of dates.
