Recent rains have the fish on the bite!
The main push of spring fish is coming to an end and the winter fish have dropped back into the system and are starting the spring spawn. The river is full of fish for the entire 14 mile float, and the water levels should continue to hold for the next couple of days while the sun shines. Rain is forecast for the middle of the week and should keep the fish on the bite.
Yarn balls and beads are most effective at this time, and should be the go to for the remainder of the season.
Good luck out there and tight lines.
