River Report / Conditions – September 10, 2019

September 8, 2019, Author: Frank Rosata

Flows on the West were bumped a few days ago to help reach target releases downstream. There has been a lot of lettuce in the water, which I’m hoping has settled down by now. Last year streamer fishing in late Summer with high flows was off the charts good. Tomorrow we get a bump in temperature as well which should help the bugs out. As for wade fishing, the Main has been the best bet. Most of the bug activity has been later in the evening, but there have been a good variety of bugs and good numbers of them as well. The Upper East is always an option, but fish are extra spooky and bugs in the evening haven’t been great the past few days.
