River Report / Conditions – June 5th 2018

Guide Justin Lyle finding Green Drakes on his float yesterday.

Reports from yesterday were great. The entire system seemed to fish well with March Browns and Sulphurs. Green Drakes even showed themselves throughout the day on the upper Main. Coffin flies have been falling later in the night which has lead us to believe that the Green Drakes are hatching after dark. Eat a early dinner and stay a little later on the river, and you may be rewarded with excellent fishing. The cool temps have the lower Main and East in safe fishing temperatures. Where is the best place to fish? Our answer, where you’ll find the least amount of people. The forecast high/low for today is 64/48 with WNW winds at 10-15 mph. Cloudy skies and occasional rain for today so have rain coast ready. Tomorrows high/low is 65/50 with a NNW wind at 7mph and cloudy skies.
