South Fork 9-13-14

Flow out of Palisades Dam was raised step-wise beginning 9/8 to about 7570 cfs to satisfy irrigation needs. Expect this coming week that flow out of the dam will be reduced back to levels before 9/8.  This change should have no significant effect on fishing because of good water conditions and the high quality of aquatic insect activity we have seen on the South Fork this season.  Thus we suggest using same strategies that have worked well before this change in flow . These include wading side channels and wading to riffles. For boating anglers, park boats and wade to fish riffles, or on drifting by, slam terrestrial patterns or Super-X’s near banks having overhead cover and good vegetation. Be  ready to switch from mid summer mayfly patterns to BWO and mahogany dun life cycle patterns especially on riffles, and under low-light conditions devote more time to presenting streamer patterns.
