River Report / Conditions – April 15, 2018

April 15, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook




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 Friday.  I did talk to one angler who fished the Lower Main Stem who managed to get a nice fish to eat a Little Black Stonefly off the surface.  Weather for today is supposed to be much cooler with a high of 36 degrees, cloudy skies and winds at 10-20 mph ESE.


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

Blue Quills – #16-18

Midges – #18-24
