Fishing Report May 5, 2021
5/5/2021

Back open for fishing, but a fairly quite day on the run. Flows have been reduced to 500 CFS as of 12:00 PM.  The current flow at the Pineville gauge is 735 CFS. The few anglers that joined us early in the day faired 'okay' for their brief outings.  One of the anglers reported landing two steelhead, swinging flies, another reporting a few bass and one that got away.  It's certainly great to hear the water didn't flush them all out.  The high water must have brought in a king or two as well, with fairly fresh remains of a female chinook on the banks of the lower end.  You never know what you might stumble into down on the run!

Fishing Report May 2
5/2/2021

Hard to get two nice days in a row.  Yesterday's sunshine gave way this afternoon to a steady cold rain. Most of the anglers left by mid-afternoon and smallmouth in good numbers and a few Steelhead was the order of the day.  Our final angler off the water this evening had a very good day going 5 for 8 with Steelhead and also added one smallmouth swinging flies in the lower section.  So while the numbers seem to be diminishing, there are still Steelhead in the system and for at least on angler "they were definitely biting today." With the rain that we received today it looks more likely that the water will stay up for a little while longer.  The flow from the dam has been updated and flow will be going to 1650 CFS starting at 8:45 tonight until midnight tomorrow. Current flow at Pineville is 1060 CFS and will be on the rise.  Water temperature today dropped a couple degree during the day going from 50 to 48 degrees.

Fishing Report May 1
5/1/2021

A much better day weather-wise today, however the fishing remained challenging. The water was raised to 750 CFS last night and during the day the water was over 1000 CFS at Pineville.  Besides causing the fish to be "unsettled" with the increase in flow, the higher water reached out to areas where seaweed/algae has been growing the past several weeks and brought it down stream.  Everyone complained about not being able to fish properly due to the "green stuff" that kept getting on their lines and flies.  Keep an eye on the water flow.  Currently the flow is to stay at 750 CFS through midnight Sunday, but I would think that it will be back down very soon.

Fishing Report April 30
4/30/2021

About a half dozen anglers joined us on this last day of April, but it sure didn't feel like the end of April.  Overcast, drizzle, and a strong wind that drove anglers home early.  The wind gusts made it very difficult to fish effectively today, but the forecast tomorrow suggests that the wind will diminish significantly and that should help everything.  I only spoke with a couple of the anglers before their departure and the reports were consistent with the weather ."Not too good." Tomorrow's forecast looks much better with diminished winds, sunshine and temperatures up to around 50 degrees. Due to the rain the water has ticked up to 685 CFS at the Pineville gauge and remains at 285 CFS from the dam.

Fishing Report April 29, 2021
4/29/2021

Another damp and rainy day, not overly windy, plenty of overcast, with a bit of fog hanging around for most of the day. Pretty fair conditions. Temperatures got up to just above 40F, which didn't do much for water temperatures, or the fishing apparently.  The anglers that joined us ranged from first timers to seasoned steel headers, most indicating a rather tough day, with a lot of fishing, but not a lot of catching. Mostly everyone had one that got away today, some several.  A more optimistic report came in as the last of the anglers headed off the water today, with the groups indicating a fairly productive day where they chose to fish most of their day in the middle and lower sections.  The group reported a few steelhead, and the rest with a number of bass, as well as our favorite, red horse suckers.  Persistence, and patience pay. Things will continue to remain a mixed bag as we come into the final stretch of the steelhead season.

Fishing Report April 28, 2021
4/28/2021

Despite being a bit of a gloomy day, the conditions were pretty great, with the perfect overcast, the rain seemed to keep anglers away today.  A little over a dozen anglers trickled onto, and off of the run, with a many reports a majority of the the reports being 1 for 2, or 2 for X, some a bit more successful.  Another day of anglers indicating, the steelhead are present down there, but remain uncooperative.  Apparently these missiles are on a mission, and flying through the home stretch.  Bass were plentiful again, offering some relief to the anglers who didn't quite find the steelhead they had their flies on.

Fishing Report April 27, 2021
4/27/2021

Reports from today were better overall than we've had the past few days, with multiple anglers landing multiple steelhead. Mostly dropbacks, but a fresh hen was was also reported, and a number of smallmouth bass kept anglers busy. Rain showers will start tonight and continue throughout the rest of the week. A quarter inch of rain is expected tomorrow.

Fishing Report April 26th, 2021
4/26/2021

Our guests continued to work for their steelhead today but the smallmouth bass were far more cooperative than yesterday. Those who did best on steelhead covered lots of water. Multiple anglers noted their struggle making a good presentation due to all the algae growing on the bottom with the low water and bright sun conditions we've been experiencing most of this month. The water temperature this morning held at 44 degrees as the cold front continued.

Fishing Report April 25th, 2021
4/25/2021

Overall, based on the day's collection of reports, I'd have to say fishing was pretty challenging for our guests as a whole. Like yesterday though, most of our regular veterans did indicate better reports with a fair to good amount of steelhead still being hooked by that group. I don't think that I could put it any better than my fellow staff member did yesterday, "It's experience, mixed with a bit of patience, and a lot of being in the right spot". We could probably write that in every day's report and it would always hold true. Strangely, bass were fairly absent in our reports today. One guest happened upon a pod and caught his fill of them and one other angler reported two caught this evening.
