Walleye in the S-Turn

It's certainly been a roller coaster over the past week with change after change in the dam release.  Today, a release of 750 CFS.  With fair weather, rather mild temperatures, a little bit of overcast, you can't ask for a much better day to be on the water, let alone steelhead fishing.  Reports that rolled in over the weekend, spread some optimism as we start to approach mid April now.  Water temperatures were recorded at 39 F this morning, reaching 43 F mid day.  From the reports we received today, it certainly wasn't lights out fishing, but most anglers were able to bring in a fish or two.  One of our guides reporting some pretty energetic fish, taking him and his clients for a nice ride from Joss down to the Spring Hole before they could tame it. Good old pink worms! And, another quite an interesting note from our guide; there seem to be an abundance of walleye spawning in the lowest parts of the run here.  Not uncommon to see them towards the estuary at this time of year, always a few caught unknowingly. Crossing our fingers that things will continue to warm, and we don't get too much rain.  It'd be nice to see the same flow for a few days!
