River Report / Conditions – July 20, 2018

July 20, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

If you’re looking for early morning action, we’ve had good reports of Tricos on the West and Upper East. Nymphing or swinging wets is always a safe bet in between hatches. Iso wets in particular are going to be productive in the riffles. We’re still seeing that mid day Sulphur and Olive hatch mid day. I had many fish take my Iso during the Sulphur hatch last night. Be sure to have Iso spinners. Stop in the shop and I’ll show you some of my favorite Iso patterns.  The forecast for today is calling for 80/54 and blue skies. The wind will be light and variable.



Sulphurs #14-#18

BWO #14-#22

Tan Caddis #14-#18

Dark Blue Sedge #14

Spotted Sedge #16-18

Iso #10-#12
