River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – August 20, 2020

August 20, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

If you are still hunting the Sulphur hatch, focus your fishing high up in the system. Down river we are seeing good numbers of Bwos, Iso’s and Cahills. Covering water and finding a good concentration of hatching insects will yield more rising fish.

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.
