September 21 2020
We continue to have dry weather conditions and so far its the driest September on record. We did have some colder weather conditions over the weekend with a frost at night and daytime temp's reaching near 60 degrees. With the low water conditions the fish continue to be holding in the deeper holes during the day and moving mostly at night. Over the weekend we had heavy fishing pressure and the lower end of the river continues to produce the most action but is also getting the most fishing pressure. Anglers reported fish holding in the deeper holes such as Papermill, Town Pool, Longbridge and Black Hole. At the DSR anglers reported getting into a mix of kings and cohos. The best fish movement has been first thing in the morning, then once we have bright and sunny conditions the fish drop back into the deeper holes. The anglers who are having the most success are those who have adapted to the challenging conditions. These anglers are covering lots of water, while constantly adjusting their leader, tippet, shot pattern and flies.
