Rivers are all in pretty good shape, and according to forecasts we might get a little more rain later this week that could set us up for some nice weekend conditions. Nymphing is still probably your best option, with some nice fish being caught subsurface. Don't be afraid to throw some streamers though, fish tend to get a bit more aggressive in the fall. TROUTOBERFEST! IS THIS WEEKEND, DON'T FORGET
ATTENTION: it is that time of year again where streams/ponds start to close for the season. Right now it is mostly the Delaware River tribs, reservoir tribs, and some of the ponds. Be sure to check your fishing regulations if you are uncertain.
Fall Hours: Open 7 days a week from 8:00am - 5:00pm

TIP OF THE WEEK - Overcast skies and nice water levels could provide some awfully nice fishing through the weekend. Olives love cloudy days so be sure to have plenty of them in your box. Now that we have the water for it, streamers can also be quite effective during the fall.
The Beaverkill & Willowemoc Rivers - Both rivers are have easy wading and are clear. You could see olives, caddis, and isonychia. Don't forget about terrestrials either.
The East Branch of the Delaware River - The river has dropped and has easy wading available today. Caddis, Olives, and a few Isonychia have been hatching recently and we've had some good reports of rising fish. Streamers can also be a good choice, especially following changes in water levels.
The West Branch of the Delaware & Delaware River- The West Branch is easily wadeable and the West Branch has options as well. Expect some discoloration and moss in the upper sections of the WB...it is that time of year. Olives, Isonychia, and Caddis are typically on the water.
