River Report / Conditions – October 8, 2018

October 8, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Fishing has been good these past few days on both the East and West. There is definitely more dry fly action on the East side, but as it drops and clears the fish will shut down due to boat traffic. Today looks to be another solid day on the water with lots of overcast and light winds.  If you’re wading find the soft spots on the edges for dry fly fishing.   If you’re streamer fishing from the banks cast out on a 45* angle downstream, let it swing into the banks and strip upstream.  Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of  75*/59* with cloudy skies and a chance of afternoon showers.   The wind will come from the WNW at 5-10 mph.
