Based on the reports from the few anglers we had join us this week, it seems the bass fishing has picked back up a bit.  Nearly all of the anglers that joined us over the course of the week neared double digit numbers on small mouth, while swinging flies. Today was a bit slower for the single angler that joined us. With both air and water temperatures now on a steady rise, these anglers have continued to focus their efforts in the morning and early afternoon ahead of the heat.  This week, hopeful that the high water brought some new fish in with it!  Water temperatures this week have lingered around the upper 60’s with temperatures jumping into the 70’s briefly.  It hasn’t been overly sunny, but it sure has been humid. Overcast has been abundant, with more smoke coverage returning from the ongoing wildfires north of us in Canada.

Weekend storms brought a bit of much-needed rain to the area and left us with muggy weather the last couple days. Between the storms and the bump in water flows from the whitewater release, anglers today reported a small uptick in smallmouth bass activity than what was reported over the weekend. Two anglers were able to hook into 10 smallies this morning on the lower half of the run, before an afternoon thunderstorm drove them off the water. Its hard to believe July is right around the corner, and salmon season soon to follow!

With temperatures making their way into the 80's, it was a fairly quiet week for the run.  A few season passholders joined us over the course of the week, for early morning outings.  Action earlier in the week seemed a bit better, likely from the cooler weather.  Things seemed to get tougher as the week progressed, as air and water temperatures have continued to rise.  The most recent water temperatures recorded were in the mid 60's approaching 70 F toward the end of this week.  Forecasts for this weekend call for a chance of rain, and some thunderstorms in the mix, which will hopefully cool things back down.  The dam release will be adjusted to 400 CFS tonight at 10:00 PM for the first of the scheduled summer white water releases.  For updated dam release information please visit safewaters.com/facility/lighthouse-hill

Despite the cool conditions, it was a pretty quiet weekend on the run, with just a couple of season passholders joining us for an outing yesterday morning into the early afternoon.  The veteran angling duo were able to muster up a few small mouth bass in the lower sections of the run, but indicated no such success in hooking into the targeted Atlantic Salmon.  Forecasted temperatures are a bit higher around 80 F this week but with overnight lows around 60 F, still allowing for good fishing opportunities in the early morning.

A light crowd this week on a run, with just a couple of veteran season pass holders joining us a few days this week.  Things remained fairly cool throughout most of the week, with a bit of rain in the mix.  Water temperatures this week hovered around 61-62 F for most of the week.  Anglers reported a few bass in their outings, but no significant numbers.  Forecasted temperatures for this week are finally creeping back toward the 80 degree mark, with plenty of overcast.

With a cloudy weekend overall, things managed to stayed fairly cool.  Water temperatures rose just a hair to about 60 F for most of the weekend.  A few anglers joined us each day over the weekend, most continuing to indicate pretty solid numbers of smallmouth brought to hand throughout the property, with a couple of double digit reports.  Most anglers mentioning these were smaller bass around 15".   Forecasts for the remainder of the week have a mix of rain, with lows around 55 F and highs around 70 F, until we get to the weekend.

Quite an interesting week, with the smoke we experienced from the fires just north of us in Canada.  Needless to say, given the smoke, just a few anglers joined us over the course of the week.  Most of whom joined us later this week, once the smoke dissipated a bit.   It appears things have returned to normal with just a minimal amount of smoke visible at this point.   Yesterday was our most heavily fished day of the week, with just 3 anglers taking advantage of the lightly pressured week, hoping the increased water earlier in the week brought some fish in with it.  A number of bass reported between the anglers yesterday, with one of the anglers landing approximately 10 bass with the largest at about 4.5 lbs.  No other species were reported this week. Water temperatures this week have settled in the range of 58-60 F.  Conditions forecasted to the weekend look pretty optimal, with good cloud coverage keeping things cool for most of the weekend.

The last few days have brought cooler daytime temperatures and a handful of anglers to the run. Reports of average sized smallmouth bass dominated but one angler landed a lunker along with a few fallfish. Water temps have dropped back down to the upper 50's and lower 60's and water flows will continue to drop over the next 48hrs to normal 185cfs baseflows by Wednesday AM. The week ahead looks mild and dry - we could certainly use some rain!

With a week of clear skies and high temperatures reaching mid 80's daily, water temperatures have increased quite a bit, and angling pressure has decreased given the conditions. Water temperatures have reached upwards of 70F this week, which is a significant increase from temperatures of nearly 50F only two weeks ago.  A couple of anglers joined us each day this week, with nearly all fishing the early mornings, making it off the water ahead of the mid day heat.  A few anglers were on a specific quest for Atlantic Salmon, but all anglers indicated catching only smallmouth this week.  Not quite an abundance of smallmouth, and quite spread out, but most anglers reporting having landed several each.
