Wednesday started out cold in the morning along with sunny conditions, but in the afternoon the temperature reached into the mid 40’s along with scattered showers late in the day. The majority of action continues to be in the upper end of the river between Altmar and Pineville, but is also getting the most fishing pressure on a daily basis. Anglers we have staying in the motel reported having another good day in the Lower Fly Zone with black stoneflies producing the best results. With the low clear water conditions the fish continue to be holding in the deep holes such as Schoolhouse Pool, Wire Hole, Ellis Cove, Trestle Pool, Ace in the Hole, Sportsman Pool, Papermill, Town Pool, Longbridge/Staircase and Black Hole. Anglers who are bottom bouncing or float fishing have had results with blue or pink egg sacs, steelhead beads, pink worms and steelhead jigs.
