Our shop will close this Friday 10/20 for the 2023 season. Nothing bad- we just need a little time off. We will reopen April 1st like normal. In the meantime we’ll be back on the blog in November for the limited fly of the week.
They are dropping the West Branch release to zero for some temporary maintenance. While not ideal this happens just about every year and the release should bump back up in the afternoon. We’d love to see them do these during a good rain event but NYC will do what they do. The river should be fine. The bugs should stay wet and the fish can adjust. There may be some redds but the main spawn hasn’t started yet. The East Branch and Mainstem will have decent water during the event.
Today will be 63 degrees and partly cloudy. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the south.
