River Report / Conditions – April 24, 2018

April 24, 2018, Author: Dave Hess

We had a couple of boats out yesterday and the reports were similar to the last several days.  Streamers got the attention of a few fish and there were caddis, olives and blue quills around.  There were a few risers but they were pretty much “one and dones.”  One angler did manage to get a […]

Another tough day yesterday.  Most anglers we spoke with reported seeing a good number of BWO’s, some Blue Quills, a lot of caddis and a few Quill Gordons, but the fish never came to the surface with any degree of consistency.  The streamer bite was also generally slow.  A couple of anglers managed to get […]

  The streamer bite was generally slow yesterday based on the reports we got.  Most anglers reported a few follows and a solid grab or two, but it was generally pretty slow.  The bug activity was also mixed based on where you were.  A couple of people reported good BWO hatches on the West, while […]

We’re definitely beginning to see more bugs.  We’ve had several reports of good hatches of Blue Quills, BWO’s and even some Hendricksons over the last two days, but there hasn’t been many fish rising consistently.  We got mixed reports on the streamer fishing yesterday.  A couple of anglers reported decent streamer fishing on the Upper […]

  More of the same for yesterday in terms of conditions…cold and snow.  We got reports from a couple of anglers yesterday.  One person swung streamers with a two-hander on the upper west and got a couple of fish to commit and had a couple other grabs.  Another group floated over on the east side […]

We did a short float on the lower West yesterday afternoon and found a few fish willing to chase streamers.  White seemed to be the color that got the most attention.  We saw a few Blue Quills and BWO’s, but not enough to interest the fish.  We spoke with another angler who saw a couple of […]

Wednesday was another tough day on the river with cold temps and gusty winds. BWOs and Blue Quills were seen but only one rise was spotted. Justin hooked a fish on a white streamer and Adam was able to nymph up a fish on a black stonefly. Today should be decent with some afternoon sunshine […]

Yesterday felt like a great day if you were steelhead fishing.  Cold, wet and windy summarizes the conditions.  We only saw 1 boat put in at Shehawken and didn’t get reports from anyone later in the day.  The river definitely got some stain throughout the day and overnight, but it didn’t get too bad.   Cannonsville […]

    The weather yesterday was a drastic change from the prior 2 days with cold temps and consistent winds that reminded us that Spring is still not here.  We had several anglers stop in the morning who were heading out despite the conditions but we didn’t get any reports later in the day.  The […]

      It seemed like things slowed down a bit yesterday.  The general consensus among the anglers we spoke with yesterday was that the streamer bite was a little slow with most anglers having a few fish chase their streamers and hooking 1 or 2 fish.  They also reported seeing fewer bugs than on […]
