River Report / Conditions – April 29, 2018

April 29, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook


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

The weather held out for most of the day yesterday, but fishing seemed to be on the slow side.  We got mixed reports again with some anglers getting a couple of fish to eat streamers and a few anglers having a little success on dries.  The bugs are definitely out, but it looks like we’ll need a few more degrees in the water temp to get the fish more active.  Another cold front is coming through today so we’ll see what happens.  Warmer temps are coming mid-week so that should help.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the shop for Sage’s On the Water Tour and congratulations to Billy Nelson, winner of the Sage Foundation outfit!
