River Report / Conditions – October 17, 2020

October 17, 2020, Author: Patrick Cook

The flow on the West Branch at Hale Eddy this morning is 1100 cfs. With the current release, it should shape up to be a good day for nymphs and streamers. The Lower East and Main are both at good levels for wading. Bwo’s and caddis are on the water in the afternoons, bringing some fish to the surface. Today we’ll see a high in the mid 50s, with a mix of clouds and sun.

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



Isonychia #14

BWO #18-24

Tan Caddis #14-20
