  • Ben Sheard River Report For 19-Oct-2015

    Posted on 19-Oct-2015 by Ben Sheard

    We woke up today to the coldest temps of the season, in the mid-20's, but the river at Hale Eddy is flowing well at 1,250 and a temp of 56. They are still releasing quite a bit of water out of the West Branch due to the dry conditions we are facing to keep the water up down at Montegue. Remember, the upper West from the PA border up is closed until April 1st but below the border is open year-round. The main is in good shape with a flow of 1,320 at Lordville. The fishermen over the weekend did fairly well on Iso nymphs and small pheasant tails. Steamer fishing on the West can be productive too with various streamer patterns with darker colors working well with the stained water, black and purple is always a local favorite. It's going to warm up later this week with temps near 70 on Wednesday so you'll likely see some little Blue Winged Olives in 18-24 and possibly some hebes in 16-18. Lotsa' Luck

    Today is looking to be the last of the fairly warm days we will have this week. Currently we are getting a nice steady drizzle which won't do much to the river and if we get enough they will likely lower it if the main puffs up overnight. The flow is about the same as the last few days with 773 cfs at Hale Eddy and 58 degrees. Down on the main the river is around 1,000 cfs with 225 coming from the lower East Branch at Fishs' Eddy which is currently 53 degrees. The rain should help with the fishing today and the next few days as there have been some bug on top but the bright, sunny days aren't the best. Expect to see some small, 18-24 Blue Winged Olives, some 16-18 hebes and maybe some 12 Isonychia anywhere you may fish. Small pheasant tails are working pretty well when nymphing for the BWO's and hebes and a larger Iso nymph or zug bug for the Isonychia. Mid-day will likely be the best time to be out, especially on the next few days which will be quite a bit cooler than what we've had earlier this week. The streamer bite on the West Branch has been decent to good depending on the day's weather, usually much better with clouds and rain in the sky. Enjoy the fall colors and good fishing weather. Lotsa' Luck
