Fishing Report: Wed, Jun 26th at 12:27pm

The river is very high and continuing to get higher due to hot sunny weather. Weather is predicted to be very hot through Saturday or Sunday this week. We are limited to just a few spots that are still catching fish. We will have trouble getting all of our reservations out through Saturday. If you have reservations check your email for an announcement about your alternatives. Fishing has been very good up until this point and for our regular customers you need to know no news is good
news. This picture represents a very happy lady who did a wonderful job stringing her fish.

Fishing was very good this week. The least was probably 15 fish and it went up considerably from there. It has been hot and sunny, the river has come up a lot yesterday and today which has slowed things a little bit.
Monday through Wednesday for day and overnight charters we work first come first serve from our line that starts at a red cone all the way to the left-hand corner of O’Brien Creek. For day charters be here by 4:30 and be ready to go and we will get as many out as we can. For overnight charters we start taking people out as early as noon, but you may not be able to start fishing until 6 PM. Wednesday night through Saturday we do reservations. See our website for full information which is the first line of this post. After we get all our reservations out we will take people from a standby line IF we have good spots left. This lady and two boys did very well overnight Friday night. And you can see the cleaning table today full of overnighters with all their fish buckets, 15 fish in each bucket.

Fishing has been OK but it has been very sporadic. Periods of good fishing with periods of poor fishing in between. We had trouble getting everyone out Monday morning Some had to go overnight Monday night with others staying in line till Tuesday morning. It has been excessively crowded and is likely we will only be able to get our reservations out for Wednesday night through Saturday.
