River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – August 18, 2020

August 18, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

With night time lows down in the 50s, we are seeing are seeing a nice cool down on the water. Iso’s and Iso spinners are becoming more prevalent. If you are looking for Sulphurs, focus your fishing higher in the system. Covering water and finding the best concentration of hatching insects will yield more rising fish.

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.
