Water temperature is nearing 80 this week and many of the fish are now on the nest or getting ready.

Again, this week fishing has been spotty in most areas with lack of current to hold fish and make them predictable. Most sections of the river are in or nearing spawn. Numbers of smaller fish are being reported with a few bigger fish mixed in. This is not what many anglers like to hear but it’s that time of year. The Drayton stretch is still producing pre spawn fish more than some other areas but is also showing signs of spawning fish. Best baits have been fresh to attract hunting fish. As the water temps creep into the 80s you may want to start using some frozen bait to extent the scent trail. Remember the hot days could make for a night bite as well. Keep fishing and it will come together.

The river is extremely low and caution should be exercised when boating (especially below dams) to ensure the safety you and your equipment.
