River Report / Conditions – May 22, 2018

Trusty Rusty strikes again.

Yesterday was another good day out there.  There was a mix of Hendricksons, Blue Quills and Caddis in most areas.  The Main also had some March Browns and an incredible caddis hatch.  Most people we spoke with reported having multiple targets throughout the day.  Now is the time when figuring out what bug the fish are keying on is critical to your success.  When all else fails, try a Rusty Spinner.  The forecast for today is calling for the potential of 1″ of rain with a high of 60 degrees and winds at 10-15 mph out of the SSE.



Tan caddis – #16-18

Blue Wing Olives – #18–24

Blue Quills – #16-18

Hendricksons #12-#14

March Brown #10-12
