Predictions say that the upcoming week will feature cloudiness, higher relative humidity, and possibly some rain in the region. All these will be a “shot in the arm” for making the BWO and mahogany dun emergences thicker up and down the river. Flow out of Palisades Dam will surely decrease from being relatively steady for several days, especially because the reservoir is about half full and storage for next agricultural season is on water managers minds. Decreasing flows mean more walk-in wade opportunities. As we advance through October, look for streamer fishing to steadily improve everywhere along the river. Best of all, the number of anglers will be down from now to till freeze-up.
