It was very high a couple of weeks ago, but I think it has dropped a couple of feet since then.

well it was very slow today only landed 6 fish (missed a few and lost a big fish that gave a few head shakes before it came off)
i only hooked fish when the sun came out and that was only a short gap in the clouds.
still was nice to be out 8)

Thanks for the report! I really don't have much time to get out these days, so the reports are very much appreciate!

We only found fish in one spot and lots of steelheaders out there too. Going to fish with Gordy on the Chilliwack tomorrow and see how that goes.

I fished the Fraser today for a bit and got some action, but it was slow. Water is brutal cold.  One fish here and there. But such a nice day.
