So far the season has been off to a good start and we are way ahead of last year at this time. We’ve been having some cooler weather which has made for some pleasant angling conditions. Over the past week depending on the day we’ve had a mix of kings and cohos moving through the lower end of the river. Some fish have reached the upper end of the river in Altmar and if your looking for some solitude this section would be the best bet. As fish continue to enter the river, the lower end has produced the best action with anglers getting into fish at the Papermill, 81 Hole, Ballpark, Town Pool, Staircase/Longbridge, Black Hole and DSR. The majority of anglers we have spoken with have been fishing the lower end of the river, but we did speak with a few groups who got into some cohos in the Upper Fly Zone. Egg sucking leeches, woolly buggers and estaz eggs have all produced steady results.
