Fishing Report - 5-14-13
Water levels along the lower shore have been in great shape this past week with fish being caught daily. Stream temperatures were in the mid 30's most mornings and the lower 40's by the afternoon.
Middle shore, river levels were on the high side but coming down. Lots of fish and moderated fishing pressure. Water temps averaged in the high 30's to low 40's - prime steelhead temps! There has been a lot of success on the Middle shore and plenty of fish lost as well.
Upper shore rivers still had really high water last week with some rivers still a bit dangerous to fish. Fishing pressure was pretty light. Water temps were pretty similar to the middle shore, though some rivers stayed a bit cooler due to the continued snow meld in the inland headwaters regions. Water levels are coming down and fishable.
The DNR reports the French River trap totals through 05/13 are 726 Kamloops and 62 steelhead.
If you are thinking about fishing, quite thinking and go. This could be an awesome next few days.
Good luck and tight lines to all!
