Do not let that stair-step drop in flow out of Palisades Dam (currently 3400 cfs, 4280 cfs at Heise, and 1730 cfs at Lorenzo) stop you from a fly-fishing visit to the river. Those flow changes, especially this time of year, are something the fish seem use to. Certainly there is less boat traffic on the river than just a few weeks ago and the dropping flow opens more walk-in wade locations. Fly pattern suggestion remains the same; BWO, caddis, and mahogany dun life cycle, streamers, and rubber leg nymphs. An overcast day, like today, will likely mean better fishing success than the nice days predicted to begin the middle of next week.
