River Report / Conditions – April 28, 2018

April 28, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Welcome and good luck to all of the participants in the FUDR One Bug!

Not much changed yesterday in terms of fishing.  A decent amount of bugs yesterday in most sections.  A few people managed to find some rising fish and got them to eat.  Most reports we’ve received indicate that if you see a fish rising consistently a small #18 BWO pattern seems to get their attention.   Small to medium size streamers in a variety of colors also fooled some fish yesterday.  The forecast for today is calling for clouds and some afternoon rain with a high of 64 degrees  and winds out of the SW at 10-15 mph.

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