River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – July 18, 2020

July 18, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

We received a thermal release from Cannonsville last night, which has Hale Eddy at currently at 860 cfs. 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. The Lower East, Main, and Beaverkill are all too warm to fish for trout.

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.
