River Report / Conditions – September 15, 2018

September 15, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

I had some success last night throwing Iso emergers into back eddys. There were lots of Olives on the water and fish feeding on them. I also saw what seemed to be some caddis takes, but  I couldn’t identify exactly which caddis it was. The release from Cannonsville has been bumped to 1500cfs. Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of  80*/61* with mostly cloudy skies . The wind will be light and variable.

Yesterday evening was absolutely beautiful. Couldn’t help but to sit back and take it all in.
