River Report / Conditions – March 29, 2018

March 29, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Welcome to our new blog!  We will do our best to keep you informed of current conditions on a daily basis.

Yesterday looked like it was going to be a good day on the river with no wind, overcast skies and temps that reached into the 40’s.  I checked 3 different areas on the main stem and saw only a handful of midges hatching and no surface activity.   We did have anglers who fished the upper main stem and lower west branch last weekend and earlier this week who reported some success while fishing subsurface.  With the increased flow, it looks like low and slow will be the way to go.

Weather for today looks decent with some fog, periods of rain and ESE winds at 5-10 mph.



Little black Stoneflies #14-18
