River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – July 29, 2018

July 29, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Both the East and West fished well yesterday. The reports from the East have been: “not a lot of any one bug, but enough variety to get them looking up.” Olives and Spinner are my go-to in those situations. The reports from the West I received throughout the day were all good. Anglers fished the entire system and did well throughout. Catching the Tricos on the Lower West in the morning, then moving up river towards the late afternoon/evening is a good all day game plan.  The forecast is calling for partly cloudy skies and a high/low of 72/56.
