River Report / Conditions – July 8, 2018

Guide Ryan Furtak putting his clients on nice West Branch Rainbows

Friday’s cold front helped keep temps down on the lower West. The Beaverkill, Lower East, and Main are still not fishable for trout. There is plenty of water and hungry trout on the West. Iso’s on the lower west (either blind casted or swung) would be a smart choice. Lower temps today should really get the bugs going, and trout looking up.  The forecast for today is calling for 82/56 with sunny skies. The wind will come from the  SSE at 5 mph.
