River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – August 26, 2018

August 26, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Cannonsville is done spilling and the release is now at 1500cfs. The cool over night temps and high flows have the system fishable down to the Upper Main. Streamer fishing has not been the most productive tactic these past couple of days. As the water clears and flows drop the fish are now spread out. We had lots of fish rising in the middle of the river yesterday.   Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of  76*/62* with partly sunny skies and NE  winds at 6 mph.
