River Report / Conditions – May 7, 2018

May 7, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

We had a steady rain yesterday which seemed to slow the bugs down.  The reports we got from yesterday indicated that the mayflies were not as prevalent as the prior couple of days and the fish were not as active.  A few anglers managed to get some fish to eat Apple Caddis.  The water at Buckingham was slightly stained this morning, but it shouldn’t affect the fishing.  The forecast for today is calling for cloudy skies in the morning giving way to sun in the afternoon with winds out of the North at 5-10 mph
