First day of autumn, and flow out of Palisades is just above 9000 cfs. We’ve had a spell of cloudy weather which has brought out PMDs and mahogany duns during daytime as well as evenings. Cool, cloudy weather this time of year also triggers fish to forage for minnows. Chernobyl and hopper patterns are still producing up and down the river with best times being until mid day. On top of all this crowds are down. It’s a great time to be on the South Fork!
