The river is up, and the channel is deep,
The wind is steady and strong.
O won't we have a jolly good time
As we go tooning along.

Down the river, O down the river,
O down the river we go-o-o.....

Alby,

There's always golf!........just kidding.

On the high side right now, but okay level for floating. If it holds, wading will be out on the WB and MS for the most part.

A flow change such as this usually puts fish down for a day or two, but good that it happened 4 or 5 days before your trip. Also good that this time of year, the flow increase does not come with a temp drastic temp change either way. In fact the temp range is ideal at the HE guage (50-57*).

The worst cast scenario would be if the res turn-over happened while you guys were up there.

Keep an eye on the flow and the reports.

Hey, if I weren't working, I'd be right there with you guys.

Take whatever comes......and enjoy!

That flow is ideal. It takes 75% of waders out of play. 1500-1800 cfs would concern me but 800 at hale is perfect. I'm not getting excited thoough...they shut it off just as quick as they opened it. If the lake turns over, get your streamer rod ready. Wish they'd bump the east to 500cfs. Pray for more water. Any release between 400 and 1500 will work. The fish change holding positions big time between those two numbers

Well, right on schedule.....they opened the gates yet again. I don't care if I plan this for early September or mid October, they''ve hit me with a big release 3 out of 4 years. It's right around 1100 cfs release. Wading the wb at that flow is not advised / dangerous except for those with lots of hours on that river. That's the bad news. The good news is that it won't impact floaters too much. 90% of fishing will be done from the boat. The main should be fine to wade. The east, upper east and Beaverkill are all low and very wadeable.

Side note- flow can go from the current 1100 cfs to 150 cfs in a matter of 3 hrs. You never know until you're there so come on up and we'll adjust the plan of attack if we need to.

If you were worried about the high cfs, here is Bart's river report from this morning...... sounds pretty damn good to me.
-------------------------------------------------------

Delaware River Report September 30, 2013
Sep 30, 2013 by Bart Larmouth

What a difference a day can make (at least on the West Branch!). The higher flows were as hock to the system early on, but the fish have certainly adapted. The Browns were highly aggressive for the majority of the day on streamers and wet flies, and the late afternoon turned into some great dry fly fishing, with the trout up and after the psuedos, cahills, hebes, and isos that were coming off. Much to my delight, Bob had great luck just throwing the cheeseburger (Iso) last night – convincing fish that were obviously sipping the psuedos to come and eat the big flies instead. Today, we’ve got a bit more cloud cover predicted, which can only help both the streamer fishing as well as olives popping more throughout the day. The release has also been bumped up to 950 cfs, which should not make too much of a difference in where the fish are hanging out. Time to put in the boat!

Very good gentlemen. Josh just called me from the smokehouse and we'll have 2 pounds of sliced and 4 pounds of bologna "ends".

Dave W,
No doubt it will be beautiful and we can only hope the fish play nice. No doubt they're in there but getting them to cooperate can be a problem sometimes.

Ok, I'm heading out and will see everybody up there in s day or two. Call me if you need something or have any questions. Safe driving.

Also...it's 1140 cfs at hale eddy so they've bumped it up a tad. Still no worries and it makes the main better for floating.

I did. They are in one of the 4 rubbermaid tubs (90%) or sitting on the kitchen counter with my glasses I forgot (10%). If I did leave them in the kitchen, I'll see if my sister can forward them to the motel. If she is not able to, I'll grab some addresses and mail them out. With this oldtimers, I'm lucky to remember my rods and the dog. I have the seats out of the element and she's almost loaded to the ceiling.
