River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – June 8, 2020

June 8, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

A few days of substantial wind and warm temps made for some very technical fishing over the weekend. Its a little bit cooler today with a high of 74* and wind NW at 7-12 mph. Caddis and Sulphurs have been making a strong presence in the afternoons, with some of the bigger bugs showing in the evenings. The best dry fly window being right before dark.  Going lighter with tippets and sizing down on flies has brought some weary fish to the net.

The fly shop is now open for curbside pick-up and limited foot traffic. We are looking forward to seeing you all and hearing how your season has gone thus far.

Feel free to call the shop with any questions about products, current conditions, or guided trips which resumed on 5/15.
