Daily air temperatures are coming back out of the cellar. Although Tuesday we saw some flurries and temps back in the teens. Snow over the weekend cooled things off a bit, but it will comeback rapidly.
Temps in the 50’s again as the weekend approaches.

Some tougher fishing this last week with the fish not really all that energized until the afternoon. Could be the cold water temps. 35F is not all that comfy. Although it is up a bit.
Flows at 4900ish cfs. A common winter flow.
Swingers are out daily catching some fish up and down the river. Stop in for an up to the minute fishing report from one of the fishing staff at Headhunters. Ninch, Sara, Braden, Max, John, Mark, Dewey, and Julie. All fishing all the time.
The weather ahead looks good. Highs in the 50’s for the weekend. Some rain, no snow.
Cabins available for rent for a mere $125. Stay and fish in Craig this weekend.
