The river is still low but very fishable. The returns are not the greatest but anglers are still catching fish. Staring April 1st you can no longer use bait in the river. Only barbless artificial is legal as of now.

Access Info

We are settling into our summertime pattern with lots of river users during the day and into the evening. Both of the recreational dams are up for the summer, those interested in targeting shad try below the Monte Rio riffle. Once the smallmouth settle into their new holding water expect action to pick up by targeting areas with lots of structure. There are still reports of the occasional striper being caught, so be ready for a large tug! Water flows are at 226 cfs with water temps in the low to mid 70's.
