River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – July 28, 2020

July 28, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

The West Branch is receding after a thermal pulse from Cannonsville. Hale Eddy is currently at 738 cfs. Daytime dry fly activity is best closer to the reservoir with Sulphurs and Bwo’s being the meal ticket. Nymphing or blind casting Iso’s can be very productive on the lower section of the WB.  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.
