277 CFS Pineville Gauge
215 CFS Dam Release

April 4, 2024

CFS at the dam started at 500 this morning, dropped to 350 at noon, and is scheduled to drop further, to 295, as of 9 PM tonight - CFS at the Pineville gauge initially read 687, since dropped to 506 as of this report - air temperatures climbed from the mid 30s to low 40s, and are back to the mid 30s - overcast skies, with bands of light rain moving through periodically, with occasional brief slushy snowfall - winds were moderate. Our few morning guests were able to get into a solitary Steelhead. Our afternoon guests were able to get into a handful of decent Steelhead and even two smallish resident Brown Trout - degree of angling success, as usual, depended upon time spent on the water today - one guest reported seeing another guest bring to hand a Smallmouth Bass, however I could not confirm that first hand - it's about that time of the year, however, for the bass to nose into the run - egg sacks under bobbers, or bounced along the bottom produced today. Tonight's forecast: "Rain and snow this evening transitioning to snow showers overnight. Low 32F. Winds N at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation 90%." Tomorrow's forecast: "Snow showers becoming mixed with rain later. High near 40F. Winds NW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of precip 50%.". NOTE: we are nearing the water temperature (50 degrees) when the Smallmouth Bass start coming into the DSR part of the river, in sufficient numbers to keep your family members, especially youths, very happily occupied - make your fishing plans now, and don't forget to check out our highly competitive lodging rates!
