Another pair of anglers joined us for a day on the run and reported a smallmouth (first cast!) and an enjoyable day on the run. Air and water temps are on the rise as we finish up June and head into the Independence Day holiday weekend. Bring the family and enjoy a day exploring the river and trails during our quiet time of year - the calm before the salmon storm!

A bit of a relief from the heat today, with temperatures remaining in the low 70's for most of the day, with a fair amount of overcast for about half of the day.  Water temperatures this morning were recorded at 64 F, and creeping up to 70 F.  Fish activity was rather quiet today, for the two anglers that joined us.  One angler joined us for a morning outing, which lasted into the early afternoon, reporting just a handful of bass today, less than his normal.  Another angler joined us for a few hours echoing our other angler's report today.  They just didn't seem to be there today, or if they were, they weren't too hungry.

A day with clear skies, little breeze, and rather warm with temperatures in the mid-80's. I guess it's just that time of year. Water temperature was not taken today, but with the temperatures that we had today and overnight, I would assume that they remained in the mid-to high 60's (as they were yesterday).
 
We had several anglers join us today that indicated that they had a good day (giving me the "thumbs up" from across the parking lot).
 
Tomorrows weather looks to be very similar to today but with temperatures perhaps a slight bit warmer.
 
Water flow will remain at 400 cfs from the dam until 6:00 PM tomorrow at which point it will start heading down to 185 cfs on Monday. Current flow at Pineville is a very manageable 464 cfs

We've hit that summer stride with low water flows and routine visits from our 'regulars' with a few new anglers mixed in. Enjoyable scenery and a few tugs on the line from some feisty smallmouth make even a short visit worth the trip. Water temps remain refreshing and in the low to mid 60s.

He managed just about a dozen small mouth today, indicating a great morning. He was able to get off the weather, before what appeared to be some impending weather, that eventually passed. Water temperatures today started around 63 F, and reach a recorded 69 F by high sun today.

We had several anglers fished the run today and all were able to get into smallmouth with varied results. So if you have been wondering: "Are the smallmouth still around?", the answer is yes.

A handful of anglers joined us today, taking advantage of the drop in water flows after the recent rain. All anglers were rewarded with a smallmouth on the line, some managed to entice more than a few. We enjoyed bluebird skies but the wind still presented a challenge, especially in the lower end of the run. Water flows were 61F at 8am, and bumped up to 65F at 12noon. Looks like its shaping up to be a nice weekend, come join us!

Given the amount of rain, the dam release is scheduled to increase to 1500 CFS for the day tomorrow.  Please check SAFEWATERS for updated release information, if you're planning on fishing tomorrow.

Despite the water still being up, and things being less accessible, the fishing seems to be remaining consistent, with some good numbers of bass indicated by our anglers today, again, swinging flies. A fair amount of rain ultimately lead all of our anglers to retreat, and call it a day.

Couldn't beat the weather today.

A beautiful, but somewhat chilly day today. Temperatures in the low 60's felt downright brisk after the heat wave of the recent past. Other matters must have taken precedent today as the run went unfished. Water level is still a bit high at 500 cfs out of the dam (through midnight) and currently 654 cfs at Pineville. Overnight low's in the mid-40's should cool the water down nicely and the weather for tomorrow looks to be sunny and highs in the lower 70's
