River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – July 27, 2018

July 27, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

I drove around after work yesterday to check the rivers out. The Upper East despite being high was quite clear. The Bkill was chocolate milk and therefore the Lower East was as well. The entire West cleared up nicely and has a good tint to it. This is a positive thing considering how snotty the fish can get this time of year. Stilesville is a good option if you want lower clear water.  The forecast for today is calling for 81/62 with scattered thunderstorms/rain this afternoon. The wind will come from the SW at 10-15 mph.
