River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – May 11, 2018

May 11, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook


The river came to life after the thunderstorm rolled through in the afternoon yesterday.  Hendricksons, caddis and spinners all took good fish yesterday.   Junction pool had numerous fish working when I stopped by last night.  A good cloud of spinners mixed with caddis was visible from the parking lot around 7 pm.  The branches are beginning to fish more consistently so that should help to spread out the crowds.  The forecast for today is calling for partly cloudy skies  with a high of 61 degrees and winds out of the NW at 10-15 mph.


Little Black Stoneflies – #14-18

Tan caddis – #16-18

Blue Wing Olives – #18–24

Blue Quills – #16-18
