River Report / Conditions – April 20, 2018

April 20, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook


Hopefully the warmer temps will bring out a few more of these guys over the weekend.

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 and reported slow conditions with only a couple fish chasing their streamers.  The temps are supposed to warm up over the weekend so hopefully that will get the bugs going.  The release from Cannonsville has been reduced to 0 cfs for their scheduled maintenance, but there’s 1300 + coming over the top so the levels haven’t changed all that much.  Weather forecast for today is calling for mostly cloudy skies with a high of 41 degrees and winds of NW at 10-20 mph.
