Fishing Outlook & Conditions
West Branch Angler's Tip of the Week
Nymphing or streamer fishing is a good option until bug activity starts up on the surface. Dry fly fishing is mostly occurring on the cloudier rainy days with BWO's being the main hatch right now. You will see a few Iso's. Light Cahill and a few different kinds of caddis. Make sure you have some spinners in your box too for later in the evening.
