River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – April 24, 2018

April 24, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

We had a couple of boats out yesterday and the reports were similar to the last several days.  Streamers got the attention of a few fish and there were caddis, olives and blue quills around.  There were a few risers but they were pretty much “one and dones.”  One angler did manage to get a good fish to eat an olive off the surface.  The forecast for today is calling for mostly cloudy skies with a high of 63 degrees and winds out of the SSE at 10-15 mph.

If you’re in the area on Saturday, stop by the shop between 9 am and 3 pm to see our friends from Sage as we host their On the Water Tour.
