River Report / Conditions – August 31, 2019

August 31, 2019, Author: Patrick Cook

A nearly double in release last night put the fish down and the debris was a p.i.t.a. to deal with.  Fishing today should be much better as its starting to drop and we have some good cloud coverage today with light and variable winds. The West and Upper Main are still very wadeable. I saw a lot more Cahills on the Lower West/ Upper Main last night with a good amount of Iso spinners.  The Upper East has been fishing well but very tricky. Many anglers are reporting getting into a lot of stockies on the Upper East which is always a drag.  Its shaping up to be a busy weekend so please respect other anglers and be sure to give them plenty of room.  If someone can cast to you in any direction around them, you’re too close!
