River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – September 5, 2018

September 5, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

It seems as if Monday did a flip flop on the West and the mid to lower part fished a little better than the top. That being said I had plenty of targets on the upper river after work. The Upper Main has been hit or miss. There has been lots of bugs but its day to day as to whether or not they’re coming up for them. As a whole, anglers are finding targets.  Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of  88*/70* with mostly sunny skies. The wind will come from the SSW at 5-10 mph.
