If you are fishing with us next week make sure you bring your warmest clothes! It looks like a cold week ahead and with winds from the North or North East! For tackle, sink tips coupled with some heavier coneheads or 1.5 to 2 inch brass tubes should do the trick, the water is still very cold at 38 to 39F.
The river has started rising again as I write this on Friday morning, but with not too much rain in the forecast it looks like the river will be in good condition for next week.
