River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – August 8, 2020

August 8, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

The West Branch is settling nicely this morning. Hale Eddy reads 1170 cfs and falling. Water clarity will be better the higher up you go. We should see comfortable wading conditions by the end of the day. Small Sulphurs and Bwos will be the main course. Keep an eye on water temperature if you plan to fish the Beaverkill, East Branch, or Main Stem. As the water tables drop we’ll return to summer temps.

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.
