River Report / Conditions – May 4, 2019

May 4, 2019, Author: Patrick Cook

Last nights rain bumped the flows on the system ever so slightly. Reports from the Main and West have been very productive. The Upper East has been slow going as far as fish on bugs.  The Main has had lots of Apple Caddis and Hendrickson’s. The West has been predominantly been a Hendrickson and Blue Quill game.         


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
