River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – September 28 2020

September 28, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

The weekend’s releases from Cannonsville have been scaled back, we currently have 477 cfs at Hale Eddy. We’ll have good cloud cover today, which will hopefully push some olives. Otherwise, swinging wet flies has been productive during the slow periods.

As we move into the last few days of September, and the nighttime temps begin to cool down again, the “bite window” will start to play a larger role. Focusing your attention on the warmest parts of the day in terms of water temps will become a key factor.

Feel free to give us a call with any questions about river conditions.
