River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – August 6, 2020

August 6, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

Rivers have come down considerably overnight. The Lower East is still very off color. The upper section should be clear and fishable with 458 cfs at Harvard this morning. We had good reports from the west yesterday with fish feeding more comfortably in the higher flows. Today we’ll see a high in the 70s which will carry into the weekend with a chance of a few showers tomorrow. Hatches remain predominantly Bwos and Sulphurs, with Isos around but spotty.

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.
