River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – April 7, 2018

April 7, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Yesterday felt like February again.  The snow came down heavy at times, but it didn’t amount to much on the ground and disappeared pretty quickly.  We spoke to 2 anglers who fished the West Branch and they managed to land a couple of quality fish on streamers despite the conditions.  They also had several other fish follow their streamers to the boat, but they never committed.   The release from Cannonsville is 1494 cfs with 925 cfs spilling.  Weather for today is calling for cloudy skies with some snow flurries early and we may even get a glimpse of that big yellow thing in the sky a little later in the day.  Winds are supposed to be out of the NW at 10-20 mph.
