Jefferson County searchers are still looking for a fisherman who fell into the water Sunday night. Steven Adams, 54, of Hawaii was fly-fishing on the river when he slipped and fell into the water. It's now moved from a rescue to a recovery effort. Family members say they heard him splash into the water. Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins speculates on what he thinks happened: “He went down to catch a fish later in the evening. Alcohol was involved. They heard a big splash and people went to check on him. They could see he was having difficulty. And then he went out of sight. But nobody could get to him in that swift water.” Sheriff Adkins says searchers will be out for the next couple of days continuing to look for Adams.
