River Report/Conditions

River Report / Conditions – August 21, 2020

August 21, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

The past few days we’ve had the typical lack of cloud cover and variable wind you’d expect for mid August, but we’ve seen decent hatches of Bwos in the afternoons, followed by Iso’s and Cahills in the evenings. Covering water and finding a good concentration of hatching insects will yield more rising fish. Nymphing and swinging wets can produce a few during the slower periods of the day.

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.
