consolidated morning and afternoon River Patrol fishing report: at the bottom line, today was challenging but categorically unproductive fishing, for a trifecta of reasons, which I will set forth below should you be interested in reading on - first, yesterday we had on and off sprinkling, followed by steady, heavy, rain throughout most of the night - as a result, although the CFS at the dam remained at 335 (as of this report there is no scheduled change), the CFS at the Pineville gauge at 6 AM was 829 - spot checks throughout the day revealed the CFS steadily climbed to it's current peak of 1110 as of the time of this report - some good news for tomorrow morning is that at 11:15 AM the straight-up climbing trend started to stutter-step, and the curve bent over a bit - since we have had negligible rain today, we should reach the ascension apogee soon, with gradually reduced flow thereafter - our overnight forecast is for 80% chance of showers turning into a light steady rain overnight, so the drop will be slowed but it may still level out at a relatively high flow tomorrow - secondly, the strong westerly winds made angling just that much more difficult, blowing straight down the river - last, no guests mentioned water clarity being any issue, probably because there were so many leaves that had been blown into the water overnight, posing yet another serious challenge to angling - it should be stated that although our part of the river system rises rapidly, it also equally rapidly drains and clears out - the conditions can only get better . . . the forecast for tomorrow is: rain early...then remaining cloudy with showers in the afternoon. High 43F. Winds WNW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 80%. Rainfall around a quarter of an inch.
