9-14-18 Fishing Report

We have some sun starting to show, finally after a pretty cloudy week so far with a decent amount of rain earlier this and showers here and there throughout the week. It looks like a dry weekend with temps in the upper 70’s. Stilesville on the upper West Branch is flowing at 1110 cfs and 57 degrees and downriver at Hale Eddy is flowing 1760 cfs and 59 degrees. The upper East Branch at Harvard is running 883 cfs and 53 degrees. Down at Fishs’ Eddy 2520 cfs and 59 degrees. Lordville down on the mainstem is running 5120 cfs and 61 degrees. The West Branch is still turbid, typical as we go into the fall, but there is plenty of visibility for all types of fishing. The rest of the system is very clear despite the recent rains as they were spread out and never really heavy at one given time. We are getting some bugs, typical fall bugs like 18-24 Blue Winged Olives, #12 Isonychia, #10 October Caddis and ants and other terrestrials have been working well if a fish is giving you trouble. Flows will likely stay pretty stable, dropping slightly as the days go on without rain. The streamer fishing has been pretty good this week on the West with the added turbidity from the rains. Lotsa’ Luck
