River Report / Conditions – August 5, 2019

August 5, 2019, Author: Frank Rosata

We had excellent overnight temps.  The forecast for the week temperature wise is looking good. The heavy dryfly action/bug activity is still on the Upper Part of the West and East. The lower river is fishing very well with nymphs and swinging. Olives, Caddis, Isonychia, Cahills, and Tricos are all on the lower West, just sporadically or right before dark. The tricos in the morning have been good behind the shop.

Hatching:

Trico #20 – 24

BWO #16-24

Sulphurs #14-18

Tan Caddis #16 – 18

Cahills #12-14

Isonychia #12
