River Report / Conditions – September 18, 2019

September 18, 2019, Author: Patrick Cook

The bright sun has made dry fly fishing during the day a little tough.  nymphing and swinging during this time is the most productive. Dry dropper Iso rigs work well during this time also, just be sure to hit the riffs.  Cloudy days bring on great hatches of Olives and Iso’s.  I hit the Upper East the last couple of nights and found almost zero bug activity. The West and Main are the most consistent right now.  Evenings on the Main have been the most productive.  Be sure to have some Whitefly patterns.
