    The West Branch got an increase in the release late last night or this morning, bringing the flow up to 1,230 at Hale Eddy. This is pretty good streamer water but is pretty high for most people to wade. With the turbidity and high water level the dry fly fishing may not be the greatest on the West but there are other options. The East Branch is on the low side with a flow of 249 at Fishs Eddy but has been fishing pretty well the last couple of weeks on top. The mainstem is in great shape as well with the higher water from the West and low water from the East makes a nice happy flow. Today looks to be rainy most of the day and should be pretty good for the fishing. Prior to this higher water on the West the lower West into the mainstem was fishing well for this time of year with some decent Cahill activity, some Isonychia and small Blue Winged Olives. Blind casting the larger Isonychia or Cahills has been working well when there isn't much going with steadily rising fish. The streamer fishing could be really good on the West as this is the water we need for it as there is quite a bit for the fish to come up through to eat small dries and the stain of the water really helps too. Darker colors like black, purple and brown should be good choices with the low light. If we do get some decent rain today they will likely cut the release back down on the West as the main Delaware way down is very low and thats why they are releasing the extra water. Lotsa' Luck

    The river is up a bit this morning with an increased release from Cannonsville and is now flowing in the mid 700's at Hale Eddy. The river is still turbid from the release water and will probably continue for a few weeks as this happens every year. As you go down the West Branch the river just gets clearer and clearer as the suspended sediment drops to the bottom. The air temps have cooled a lot since last week an temps are great throughout the system and the fishing has been very good for those who know how to fish this time of year. There are still some tricos in the morning to start off the day, usually on the water around 9:30-11 depending on the temp and sun/overcast conditions. The East Branch and mainstem are in good shape and very nice to be on this time of year and have been fishing pretty well. On your bright sunny days don't expect to see constant bugs but this time of year is when blind-casting big Iso's or Cahills can be deadly in the faster water. It does take a little determination to keep casting and gridding the water when not much is going on but if you keep at it you will catch fish. It's all about covering water, getting good drifts and always being ready. There have also been some Blue Winged Olives from 18-24 as well. The flying ants have been around and will be for a while, some days more than others and a little wind doesn't hurt either. It's a great time to be on the river without much competition this time of year. Lotsa' Luck
