River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – July 12, 2020

July 11, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

We received some substantial rainfall the past few days. The lower East Branch is push quite a bit of color into the Main with Fish’s Eddy at 1780 cfs. This will continue as the Beaverkill and Willowemoc drain.

The West Branch however, remains in good shape with Hale Eddy falling  near 585 cfs. Summer hatches will continue with a mix of Sulphurs, Bwos, Cahills and Isos starting in the afternoon and into the evening. Keep your tippet light and your patterns sparse.

Feel free to give us a call with any questions about river conditions.

Cross Current Guide Service is now booking Magic Hour trips in the evenings, 6pm to dark for $250.00 (two angler max).  These dates fill up quick so give us a call or email with any questions or booking requests.
