Fishing Report August 18, 2017
Today was a high of 84 degrees with winds SSE at 5 mph. Sunrise was at 6:47am and sunset is at 7:08pm. Water temperature was recorded at 64 degrees with CFS at the dam at 500 and 583 at Pineville. River patrol reported “enough fish to go around”. The upper and mid sections of the run were said to be steady however the low end saw low to moderate activity. We have heard reports of multiple hook ups and one gentleman told us that he brought five to hand.
interim fishing report 18 Sep 17
two clients came off the run, at 10:15 AM – their report seemed to verify the observations and earlier reports of our River Patrol – a LOT of fish in the lower section provided these two clients with their “best morning in three years, maybe ever” for only the first hour after sunrise – after that, the action fizzled for them and they went prospecting upriver – these clients stated that it seemed only a trickle of all these fish actually moved up into the middle section of the run, where some clients were benefiting from that trickle – it is hot weather today – reaching that promised mid-80s temperature already – that, and bright sunshine, will probably cause a “salmon siesta” until later this evening
