River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – July 17, 2020

July 17, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

We’ve got a warm weekend ahead of us, so keep an eye on water temps. The Lower East, Main, and Beaverkill are all too warm to fish, but the West Branch remains in good shape. Summer hatches will continue with a mix of Sulphurs, Bwos, Cahills and Isos starting in the afternoons and into the evening. Keep your tippet light and your patterns sparse.

Feel free to give us a call with any questions about river conditions.

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.
