River Report / Conditions – August 5, 2018

August 5, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

The West has cleared up nicely and should fish well today. There is still a little color to it, but that’s a positive thing! The Upper East is still a bit high for wading, but is also clearing up nicely. If you do decide to fish the East do not be afraid to fish from shore and pull streamers along the banks below you. You may get a nice surprise! 😉   The forecast is calling for cloudy day and a high/low of 89/61 with ESE winds at 2 mph.

Our buddy Mark didn’t let the high off color water stop him
