River Report / Conditions – May 14, 2018

May 14, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Yesterday was a repeat of Saturday with BWO’s showing up in good numbers throughout the system.  Most anglers we spoke with had numerous targets from late morning until late afternoon.  Some anglers reported that the main problem was too many naturals on the water so the fish had a difficult time picking out their fly.  The forecast for today is calling for fog in the a.m. turning to sunny skies in the p.m. with winds at 5-10 mph out of the WSW.


Tan caddis – #16-18
