April 20, 2023

Just a tad warmer today.  Temperatures hovered around 50 F for most of the day, with little to no wind, and some pretty good overcast.  Just under 2 dozen anglers early took advantage of the weather, a majority joining us early in the day, and wrapping things up early afternoon.  The reports from the anglers echoed those of yesterday, with plenty of fish being caught by all over the run, but what you caught really depending on where the efforts were focused.  The lower end again produced substantially more smallmouth bass with a few steelhead in the mix, while the middle and upper sections reported a majority of steelhead caught, with just a few bass in the mix.  Having your pick is never a bad thing!  Hopefully we will continue to see some more upbeat action as we head into the weekend. The dam release is currently scheduled to remain at 500 CFS until 11:59 PM tomorrow night (4/21).  Please check for update release information.
