River lowest we have seen it in years

The river is now the lowest we have seen it for years during our fishing season, and it is a nice treat! It makes for slightly more difficult navigation, but good fishing! There's not a ton of fish in the river, but they are holding up quite good in some of the top pools, and fresh fish continue to trickle in. Reports from net fishers in the bay indicate that there are still plenty of fish in the bay so we expect some good fishing for a while yet.

Our departing group had a great week! Water was warm and days were bright but between a group of 7 I overheard them say they hooked over 80 fish, and 2 others here reported their best success in 5 years! That's all good with us and it's always good to hear them ask about dates for next year when they board the plane.

The weather has cooled and with that the water has cooled back to around 64-65F. We had a new group arrive yesterday and they've already had some success. One boat in their first half day of fishing got into 6 fish so that's a pretty good start for them. There were some hard rain showers so we hope the river level just maintains now. Here's a pic of guest Brian, enjoying his second trip with us at Pratt Falls Lodge last week. -DL
