River Report / Conditions – April 8, 2018

April 8, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

I know I’m beginning to sound like a broken record here, but yesterday was similar to the last few days.  We spoke with a few anglers who managed to get the attention of a couple of fish while fishing streamers.  Darker colored streamers in olive and black seem to be getting the most attention.  Covering a lot of water will definitely increase your chances for success in these conditions.   Forecast for today is calling for sun/clouds mixed in the morning turning cloudy in the afternoon.  Winds are out of the NW at 10-20 mph with a high of 35 degrees.


Little Black Stoneflies – #14-18
Blue Wing Olives – #18 – 24

Midges – #18-24
