River Report / Conditions – May 2, 2018

May 2, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

 

Yesterday we had blue skies and a high around 80. We also had a good hatch of Hendricksons in the afternoon. Not a lot of fish were up, but enough to have targets. Caddis, stones and olives were also out in good numbers. Even with the high sun, the streamer bite was decent, with olive and tan being the best combination. Expect similar conditions today and a chance for some storms on Thursday.

 

 

Hatching:

Little Black Stoneflies – #14-18

Black caddis – #16-18
Blue Wing Olives – #18–24
