Please note that the lodge guest South side parking lot has been closed for the season since November - do not remove the chain to access the lot.
CFS at the dam 360 - CFS at the Pineville gauge 531 - air temperature started at 36 degrees early, dropped to 33 degrees, then climbed to our high of 39 for the day - heavy overcast most of the day, with occasional sunshine peeking through mid-morning, before the clouds rolled back in for good - winds in the AM were mild, but have started picking up as of this report - the only new precipitation was a brief period, mid-morning, of what appeared to be a frozen mist falling - we had 16 guests join us on the run today - I was only able to speak to six of these guests, as they were leaving the run (after checking-in, others then chose to access the run from different points such as at the top, from the estuary, and on the South side) - apparently, according to a few of the guests checking out, fishing today was a strong echo of yesterday - again, the upper section was not as productive as the middle and lower sections - beginning at noon the first angler off the run reported 1 / 4 Steelhead, drifting beads under a bobber - he returned to fish and is still out there - another guest on his heels reported 1 / 2 drifting beads under a bobber as well as swinging flies - our third guest struck out, stating "Still learning, they're there, that's OK!" - our fourth guest reported 2 / 7 drifting beads and egg sacks under a bobber - our fifth guest was pleased to report a nice Steelhead, swinging a sculpin, and mentioned that he had also fought four Brown Trout (which he had not been targeting . . . ) - our last guest reported 2 / 3, which included a nice Brown Trout, swinging about an inch and an half long white streamer - it appears that 10mm green glow or frosted orange beads have produced regularly these past few days, as well as white egg sacks, egg patterns or white flies - the overnight forecast is: Occasional snow showers. Low 26F. Winds SW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 50%. Snow accumulations less than one inch. The forecast for tomorrow is: Cloudy with snow. High 33F. Winds WSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 90%. Snow accumulating 3 to 5 inches. Heavier amounts in persistent snow bands.
