Over the last couple of days the weather has been hot and humid and is expected to continue right through the holiday weekend. The base flow has been 335cfs which started on September 1st and a white water release is scheduled for the holiday weekend, so please check waterline for the latest update. The few anglers we spoke with over the last couple of days have been fishing the lower end of the river in the Ball Park, Longbridge/Staircase and DSR. The anglers we spoke with who said they saw some fish were fishing at the DSR. Late yesterday afternoon we were back on the lake and it was flat as glass. We fished in 100ft of water off the Salmon River, didn’t mark a ton of fish where we were but enough to set up. We worked hard and managed to land 2 nice kings, one of which was 26 lbs, our biggest so far. One of the fish came on a Stinger Spoon and the other was on a Pro-Troll Flasher with an A-Tom-Mik Fly. In the motel we have a mix of river fisherman and lake fisherman coming in for the holiday weekend.
