River Report / Conditions – September 17, 2018

September 17, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

We’re getting to the point where you should be looking below the surface as well as on top.  There is still plenty of dryfly opportunities, but if you want to be productive throughout the day you should be willing to change things up a bit.  Swinging wets is a very fun and productive way to pass the time in between hatches. Don’t be a one trick pony, broaden your angling abilities.  The release from Cannonsville has been bumped to 1500cfs. Today’s forecast is calling for  a high/low of  77*/67* with rain. The wind will come from the SE at 3mph.
