River Report / Conditions – September 16, 2020

September 16, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

The cool nights have brought on the fall hatches. Good numbers of olives can be found hatching in the afternoons into the evenings. Cahills, Iso’s, and caddis are about too. With the variety of bugs on the water, having a good selection of spinners in your box can be very helpful this time of year. Temps will stay in the 60s today with a few clouds around in the late afternoon (hopefully), but the sunny days haven’t seemed so “sunny” with the hazy skies we’ve encountered as of late.

Feel free to give us a call with any questions about river conditions.
