For the last several days USBuRec has ramped down flow out of Palisades Dam to its present level of 6970 cfs. Look for more flow reductions coming up as water storage in the reservoir progresses. These actions will allow an increase in wading opportunities. Currently the river features very good BWO emergences in riffles with some mahogany duns showing. This cooler weather will bring PMD activity to an end, but hoppers and other terrestrial insects will remain in well vegetated areas until a killing frost arrives. Streamer fishing during low light conditions is another aspect that will improve anywhere along the river. All this means that some of the best fishing it can offer this year could be coming up on the South Fork.
