River Report / Conditions – April 9, 2018

April 9, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Not a lot has changed since yesterday.  The release out of Cannonsville remains at 1499 cfs with an additional 696 cfs spilling.  Fishing pressure has been light.  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 WNW at 5-10 mph with a high of 44 degrees.  The 10 day forecast is calling for temps to warm up significantly later in the week so hings should start to pick up.


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

Midges – #18-24
