River Report / Conditions – September 6, 2018

September 6, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

Tough but beautiful day on the water yesterday. Not a whole lot of bugs to speak of and the fish that were up, seemed to be smaller guys. We’re in the bottom of the 6th inning as far as dryfly fishing goes, so my advice would be start looking subsurface throughout the day.   Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of  80*/63* with mostly cloudy skies. The wind will come from the SE at 8-10 mph.
