River Report / Conditions – May 29, 2018

May 29, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Caddis were the main fare on the West Branch in the afternoon until the spinners came down later in the day while the Main Stem saw decent numbers of March Browns mixed in with the caddis.  Sulphurs have also begun trickling off in some areas.  We received mixed reports from anglers with some saying the fishing was great while others reported it was just o.k.  Most people we spoke with reported at least some targets to fish to.  The weather for today is calling for partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of a thunderstorm with winds out of the North at 5-10 mph.




Tan caddis – #16-18

Blue Wing Olives – #14–24

Blue Quills – #16-18

March Brown #10-12

Sulphurs #14-16
