River Report / Conditions – April 13, 2018

April 13, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook



Yesterday sure felt like it was a BWO day, but it just didn’t seem to happen.  The anglers we spoke with who were successful still were going subsurface with nymphs and streamers.  I checked a couple of spots on the Main Stem after work and only saw 1 fish rise one time and didn’t see any bugs.  The forecast for today is calling for  a.m. showers turning to cloudy skies later in the day.  The temps are supposed to reach the low 70’s with winds of 5-10 mph out of the WSW.  Hopefully the warmer weather will get things going for the weekend.
