River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – August 24, 2020

August 24, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

We are on the tail end of the warm up now and should see nightly temps slide back down into the 50s and low 60s over the next few days. Nymphs and wets flies will be your best bet while waiting for the hatches to get going. Looks for Bwo’s in the late afternoons, and Iso’s and Cahills in the evening.

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.
