River Report / Conditions – September 30, 2020

September 30, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

While most of the daytime showers missed us yesterday, we saw some heavy rain overnight. The eastern part of the drainage is up and off color, while the west has yet to show a dramatic increase in flow. Hale Eddy is currently 540cfs. We could see some color increase as the day progresses. Yesterday we had a good mix of caddis, olives, and Iso spinners in the evening.

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.
