On Monday we picked up several inches of snow from Winter Storm Marcus, but the highest of snow totals were south of us in the Syracuse area. With cold and snowy conditions, slush ice was a factor in the lower end of the river and did not clear. The anglers that we spoke with in the morning were heading to the upper end of the river and we did not hear back from them at the end of the day. 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.
