River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – April 10, 2018

April 10, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook


The weather definitely improved yesterday and more anglers took advantage of it.  We got mixed reports from the West Branch.  A couple of anglers did well (given the conditions) fishing streamers while others didn’t.  One angler we spoke with was successful swinging white streamers on the upper west and managed to land a few nice fish in a relatively short time.  We also got a report of a good number of BWO’s hatching on the upper west in the late morning/early afternoon, but the fish didn’t seem too interested.  The forecast for today is calling for it to be cloudy with some snow showers in the morning with a high of 41 degrees and winds at 5-10 mph out of the NW.  It looks like we’re finally in for a warm up at the end of the week so things could get interesting.
