River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – September 3, 2020

September 3, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

Light rain and drizzle fell for most of the day yesterday, which brought out good numbers of Bwo’s. We saw some heavier precipitation in the evening and overnight. As a result the flows on the West Branch are up slightly but its still in great shape. We should have some decent cloud cover today. Looks for Olives again, and keep an eye out for flying ants.  Blind casting Iso’s in the faster water can bring up a few fish as well.

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.
