Wayne Reports. River levels have dropped to summer levels the past few weekends and fishing has been a challenge for many. Best times for fishing is early morning and late evening. As soon as the sun shines on the river, the trout head down deep and shut down. Water temperatures have risen quickly with the hot weather. We needed that rain on Sunday and Monday.
