Conditions : South Fork: Other than flow out of Palisades Dam being reduced slightly to 1750 cfs ( now 2350 cfs at Heise, 910 cfs at Lorenzo), there is now significant change on the river. So use the fishing strategies we offered in our Saturday, October 15th fishing report.

(10/16) - With Palisades Reservoir down to 5% of capacity it is no wonder that flows are being reduced (now 1820 cfs at Irwin, 2430 cfs at Heise, 960 cfs at Lorenzo). This makes the river a ” fly fishing heaven” for walk-in wade anglers but creates some tough places for the boating angler. Nevertheless the BWO and mahogany dun and PM caddis activity continues. Presenting streamers becomes increasingly effective. Crowds are down, but fall colors are all but gone, Good fishing with better tranquility reigns.
