River Report / Conditions – August 16, 2018

August 16, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Guide Justin Lyle and myself fish about 3/4’s of the West yesterday and had a stellar day. We fished primarily streamers and had good dry fly opportunities as well. Speaking with others who floated yesterday, it seems as if they had the same outcome we did. The Lower West was very muddy yesterday, and didn’t fish as well as the top. This morning the Lower part is much clearer and should fish great throughout. Balls Eddy is now repaired and launchable.  The release out of Cannonsville remains at 1500cfs. Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of 81*/6* with plenty of sunshine and winds out of E at 6mph.
