River Report / Conditions – July 16, 2018

July 16, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

The flows on the West were bumped to 613cfs. Nymphing on the Lower West has been productive. Algae is less of  an issue lower, and those willing to deal with it are being rewarded. Sulphurs in the evening have been coming off in good numbers. We’re still getting that mid day Sulphur/Olive hatch as well. Iso’s make for good prospecting patterns. Keep an eye out for selective fish feeding on Cahills.  The forecast for today is calling for 90/71 with cloudy skies. The wind will come from the SW at 5-10mph.
