Virtually no change in the river conditions today . and expected to rise  just slightly then steady out again. Basically the rain we got yesterday didn’t to much, although the current has increased and may need at least 3/4 – 1oz to hold that bait near the bottom.

We saw a  fish come in from Jerome Rd rapids and had reports of a few others caught  there as well .  Also reports of one caught at Bluegrass and Buttonwood respectively. And we are hearing of a few females being snagged (and released of course). So the outlook is promising. The wind picked up yesterday afternoon and made its pretty difficult fishing for most of the day. and they are calling for more wind today . Keep in mind that it still is officially winter- the first day of spring isn’t until March 20.  All areas will be accessible to fish today.
