On Thursday the temperature was in the mid 20’s for most of the day and late in the afternoon it started to drop into the low teens. As far as the weather goes we had a mix of everything, we had sunshine at times, cloudy conditions at times and heavy snow showers on and off for most of the day. Some of the coldest weather of the season is expected for Friday and Sunday. Anglers staying in the motel reported getting into fish in the mid to upper end of the river while bottom bouncing with flies or float fishing with blue egg sacs. I fished the DSR for a couple hours and managed to land two fresh fish while float fishing with pink egg sacs. The upper end of the river in Altmar has not been getting slush ice and is where most anglers are fishing on a daily basis. With the recent cold temp’s most anglers have been fishing late morning through early afternoon which has been the warmest part of the day. In the upper end of the river anglers are fishing the Lower Fly Zone, Schoolhouse Pool, Wire Hole, Ellis Cove, Bovines, Trestle Pool, Refrigerator and Pineville.
