River Report / Conditions – May 6, 2018

May 6, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

The Hendricksons and Apple Caddis were out in good numbers on the Main Stem yesterday and the fish seemed happy to eat.  Most anglers we spoke with reported having multiple targets once the bugs started later in the day.  There was a lot of anglers out there yesterday so the fish are seeing a lot of flies.  Presentation and a good drift are critical to getting these fish to eat.  The forecast for today is calling for 1/4″ of rain with winds out of the east at 5-10 mph.

Black caddis – #16-18
