River Report / Conditions – May 1, 2018

May 1, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook


Yesterday’s weather was pretty tough.  We had snow in the morning with cold temps throughout the day.  The reports we got were a repeat of the past few days with streamers getting some action and only a few rising fish spotted.   Generally, the fishing was slow.  Hopefully the warmer temps today will get the fish more active.  The forecast for today is calling for sunny skies with a high of 74 degrees and winds out of the WNW at 5-10 mph.
