River Report / Conditions – August 7, 2018

August 7, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Targets were to be had throughout the day yesterday. The streamer bite on the East side has been good the past couple of days. The day time temps have the fog rolling in around 8:00pm and stifling the fishing so be sure to be on the water earlier.   If you’re nymphing, find the slack water and seams. They bumped the flows on the West to 928cfs. If you plan to wade look for fish on the banks along side of you, don’t worry about wading out in the middle.    The forecast is calling for cloudy day and a high/low of 86/70 with S winds at 3 mph.
