River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – June 1st, 2018

June 1, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Cloudy weather and low winds for today should make for good dry fly action.  The flows throughout the system are in perfect condition for wading.  The fishing has been pretty consistent.  There hasn’t been any one section fishing better than the other, or one section having more bugs than the other. We expect with the current conditions and forecast for the bugs to really get going here. One angler we spoke with had success last night letting his fly dangle a bit at the end of his drift, so don’t be afraid to do the same. Soft hackles (as we know ) can be a very effective way to fish. March Brown soft hackles, and hares ear soft hackles make for great searching patterns for both Caddis and March Browns.  Prospecting MB’s with droppers can make for a very productive day, even when fish are not rising. The forecast for today is calling for a high of 84 and low of 66 with very light winds. T-storms have potential to develop in the afternoon and evening. Tomorrows forecast is 74 and a low of 58 with a north wind at 10mph, and cloudy skies with an occasional rain shower.



Tan caddis – #16-18

Blue Wing Olives – #14–24

Blue Quills – #16-18

March Brown #10-12

Sulphurs #14-16
