River Report / Conditions – October 9, 2020

October 9, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

The West Branch is looking good this morning. 806 cfs at Hale Eddy bodes great for fall. Caddis and Bwos will bring some fish to the surface. Iso’s are still an option as well. Blind casting them in the broken water can be productive during the slow periods. With sunny skies and moderate winds in the forecast for the day, nymphing and swinging wet flies will also be a good way to cover ground.

Stop by the shop or give us a call for updates on current conditions.
