With the rain up in the hills and warm temperatures melting the last of the snow, the river has come up and turned a nice mocha color.  Without rain in the next few days the river could be OK to fish this weekend.

Water has dropped and has cleared very little, fishing conditions still remain to be tough and no reports today from the river.  The King Salmon fishing out on the Inlet has been good. Halibut fishing is slow. Grant Anderson
