River Report / Conditions – April 24, 2019

April 24, 2019, Author: Patrick Cook

All smiles at the boat ramp last night. Excellent dry fly action yesterday on the lower half of the West Branch. We had a good number of Hendrickson’s and fish were eager to take them. Today is going to  be a bit cooler with temps only reaching 56* and gusts up to 22mph. As long as the wind stays relatively cooperative, I would assume today should fish much the same as yesterday.


Hendricksons – #12-14

Blue Quills (Paraleps) #16-18

BWO #16-20

Chimarra Caddis – Not very important as an Adult, but swinging little black soft hackles in riffs can be productive. #16 -18

Little Black/Brown Stoneflies – #14-18

Midges #20-26
