River Report / Conditions – July 4, 2019

July 4, 2019, Author: Frank Rosata

Temps on the Lower West Main are climbing/have climbed into unsafe temperatures. The Upper West and Upper East are still safe to fish. Sulphurs, Iso’s, Cahills, BWO and some Gray Fox (Upper West) are the main bugs to be worrying about.  Brown Drakes are on the Upper East and can provide good spinner falls. Water is very low and fish will be extra spooky, stealth is very important. Try not to throw wakes when wading.

Hatching:

 

BWO #16-20

March Browns #14

Sulphurs #14-18

Tan Caddis #16 – 18

Cahills #12-14

Isonychia #10 – 12
