River Report / Conditions – April 25, 2018

April 25, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

The streamer bite seemed to improve yesterday and a couple of people managed to take a fish or two off the surface on BWO’s.  I was over on the east side yesterday and saw Hendrickson’s trickling off throughout the afternoon.  There weren’t enough to get the fish up consistently, but it’s a start!  The forecast for today is calling for about 1/4″ of rain early followed by cloudy skies later with winds out of the ESE at 10-15 mph.

If you’re in the area on Saturday, stop by the shop between 9 am and 3 pm to see our friends from Sage as we host their On the Water Tour.
