River Report / Conditions – April 27, 2018

April 27, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

The reports from yesterday are similar to the last few days.  A fair number of Blue Quills, BWO’s and Caddis with some Hendricksons thrown in for good measure.  The fish are still not rising consistently so most anglers have been throwing streamers.  White seemed to be the color of the day yesterday with several anglers getting into some nice fish.  The forecast for today is a high of 53 degrees with rain totaling about 1/4″ and ESE winds at 5-10 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.
