“Fishing has been pretty good this week,” said guide Mike Coopman. “The river is low and clear, but there’s a few spots that are holding fish. If your timing is right, you can do well. We’re averaging between three and six hookups per day, and all the fish are nice ones. Quite a bit of rain is predicted this week but if it stays cold, the river could remain fishable. It all depends on if it falls as rain or snow. Boat pressure has been light,” he added.
