Can't tell you much about Birchdale area specifically as I like the lower river and lake and never fish above the clementson area during the fall. I was out Tuesday, water temp about 49 degrees, a little color to the water, current running pretty strong and I bumped it up to a half ounce jig where I was using a 3/8's the week before.

Been raining all day and it's supposed to rain all nite and most of tomorrow followed up by high winds. This certainly will not help with conditions on the lake or river for the short term anyhow.

Rising water and faster flow I will fish shallower spots than I normally do during the fall season.

You may have to work for em but there have been some nice fish caught over the past week out of the river.

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
