The flow at Stilesville is steady at 1,400 cfs. hale Eddy has evened out around 1,700.  Wading is tough but some people are trying it.  It is fishing with nymphs and streamers.  there is some dry fly action but you have to fins water the fish will eat small olives in.  The West Branch does have the normal fall color to it.  The Beaverkill / Willowemoc have dropped quite a bit and will have more options for wading today.
