River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – May 28 , 2020

May 28, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

With the variety of bugs on the water, spending some extra time to study your target fish will pay off. Take a few casts, pause for a bit, then repeat. The perfect replica of a Rusty Spinner doesn’t always float over them every 12 seconds. And remember to enjoy your time on the river! 

The fly shop is now open for curbside pick-up and limited foot traffic. We are looking forward to seeing you all and hearing how your season has gone thus far.

Feel free to call the shop with any questions about products, current conditions, or guided trips which resumed on 5/15.
