River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – July 23, 2020

July 23, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

We’ve got a few potential storms in the forecast again today with the wind blowing 5-10 mph. As of late the rain has missed us for the most part, but it does bring decent cloud cover. The eastern part of the drainage received a small bump from yesterdays precipitation. Sulfurs and Bwo’s are the go-to’s up closer to the reservoirs, with nymphing being the staple lower in the system.  The Lower East, Main, and Beaverkill are all too warm to fish for trout.

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.
