Yesterday was another cold day and in the morning the temperature was in the single digits. Even with blue skies and plenty of sunshine the temperature was only in the teens. In the morning slush ice was a factor in the lower end of the river but did clear in the afternoon. With the low clear water conditions the fish continue to be holding in the deep holes. Yesterday anglers staying in the motel reported having the most action in the Lower Fly Zone with black stoneflies, pheasant tails and hare’s ear producing steady results. Anglers who are float fishing or bottom bouncing have got into fish in the Schoolhouse, Wire Hole, Ellis Cove and Trestle Pool while using blue or pink egg sacs, trout beads, and pink worms.
