Flow out of Palisades Dam is down to 11000 cfs which is approaching normal for this time of year and is very close to current Palisades Reservoir inflow. Temperature of water coming out of dam is around 57 Deg. F. Nevertheless best fishing continues to be with nymphs, wet flies, and streamers. Plenty of submerged food remains in the river, so fish have little need to come to the surface to feed. Looking into the future, there will be more drops in the flow out of Palisades Dam as summer passes by. With these drops in flow fish will tend to come to the surface more often. Keep in touch with this report as we will post dry fly action as it is bound to improve over the second half of summer.
Tim went down the Lower river this morning and has a report about the Lorenzo boat ramp. Check it out on Today at Jimmy’s or just click here.
