River Report / Conditions – September 23, 2019

September 23, 2019, Author: Patrick Cook

Dry fly fishing has been tough as of late. The beautiful bright sunny days don’t do much for us as far as surface action. The fish that have been up, have been on the smaller side. We are expecting an afternoon storm and cloud coverage which could really liven things up a bit.  Nymphing, swinging, and dry-droppering have been very effective. Particularly on the mainstem. Fish are pretty well stacked up in the riffles. As far as streamer fishing goes they seem to pretty selective, so be sure to have a good variety of sizes and colors.
