River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – September 4, 2020

September 4, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

Heading into the holiday weekend, we’ll see temps in the mid 70s with a mix of clouds and sun throughout. Nighttime temps have rivers cooling down, fish seem to be responding well. Look for Bwo’s, Flying Ants, and Iso’s to bring fish to the surface to feed. Nymphing has been very productive as of late. Think small Pheasant Tail’s and Copper Johns. 

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.
