River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – August 16, 2020

August 15, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

Things are beginning to cool off and it feels great. We’ll see temps in the 70s most of the week. Maybe a shower this afternoon. The Sulphur hatch is still going up top. Covering water and finding the highest concentration of bugs will be your best bet for rising fish. Keep your tippet light and patterns sparse.

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.
