With the recent warm up, the shore ice has melted and opened up the lower boat launches. Fishing has been good and should only get better. The next two to three weeks will be the best on the lower river. Float fishing with beads has produced the best for me. We have taken most of our fish with 10 mm beads in natural colors but a few coming on brighter colors as well. Jigs and waxies will still catch some fish but stone flies and egg patterns should get you some action too.
