River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – July 27, 2020

July 26, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

We’ll see temps in the 90s today with plenty of sunshine. Be sure to keep an eye on water temps. The Lower East, Main, and Beaverkill are all too warm to fish for trout.  Sulfurs and Bwo’s will be your best bet closer to the reservoir on the West Branch, with nymphing being the staple lower in the system.  

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.
