What will you be doing at 5:30 AM on Saturday?

Hang on to your hat! Anything goes in the 5 fish a day section of the lower river on Saturday. Most of the stocked fish are between Upper Glencoe and Sparks Rd. The upper is presently clearing and will be in great shape by the weekend. Water is spilling over the top of the dam and the water will continue to warm up, (41-43 F) through the weekend. Larger fish like dropping water levels and we typically fish large streamers after a big rain. Have any smallmouth patterns in your box? Give ’em a try. If you’d like to fish dries, we have a great fluttering stonefly that has accounted for some wild fish in the 10-14 inch range the past week.If you don’t have a stonefly in your box try a pea***** or black caddis in a #12-14.Small Olives in a #20-22 continue to produce from Masemore upstream.
