River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – July 5, 2020

July 5, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

Nymphing during the daytime will be your best bet until the hatches get going. The upper portions of the river tend to pick up earlier on than the lower. Sulphurs in size 16 & 18 are the go-to, while blind casting Isos in likely holding water can raise a few during the slower periods. Have a great holiday weekend!

Cross Current Guide Service is now booking Magic Hour trips in the evenings, 6pm to dark for $250.00 (two angler max).  These dates fill up quick so give us a call or email with any questions or booking requests.
