The upper WB is actually trashed because of a lack of rain. It's opposite world up there. When everything is low, the WB is ripping. They need to open it up to maintain base flows on the mainstem.

Lots of rain means a low, clear WB and a high, muddy EB. The EB picks up the big tributaries.

Andy (Sight_Nymph) and Josh are there as of yesterday. I will be arriving tomorrow with RedSun around noon, if anyone wants to meet and fish just PM me. Everyone will be gathering back at Capra Motel around 6:30-7 or so. One of the PAFF members is bringing a grill. Wsender is bringing hot dogs for the group so a contribution to him to cover costs would be great. BYOB. Saturday morning everyone has the option of going to Boarder Water Outfitters right down the street from the Motel for an informational session put on by Coz (owner of BWO). There will also be a raffle per discussions in thread. The meeting is around 10:00 AM. Obviously you can fish before hand or sleep off the hangover from the night before. We'll form groups and plan our attack of these waters. Saturday evening we will again meet at the Capra Motel. Poker, drinking, grilling, etc shall ensue. As noted I am bringing steaks, baked potato, baked beans and sauteed mushrooms for dinner that night. I can bring as much as needed, however I need a head count. I figure cost to be around $7 head. BIG NY Strips or Ribeyes. Sunday we will attempt to gather our thoughts and fish the day out.

Due to conditions beyond my control, I won't be able to make it. I'm sorry it's so last minute, but I've been trying to make it work all day. I'm really bummer, sad, pissed, that I can't make it and feel bad that I'm letting everyone down with the hotdogs. I really wanted to come. I've been trying flies for weeks and have been reading Weamers book non-stop. Next time for sure guys. Sorry......

...and?

C'mon, I know what happens in Vegas stays there, but:

1) This is PAFF. You're among friends here. Except you, Alpa. You have no friends.
2) Vegas and Hancock, NY are not the same place.
3) Blackmail is an effective method of friendship here.
4) We're fishermen. Surely there's fish stories.

So, I take it that the Delaware was totally unfishable?
Did anyone try the Beaverkill?

My understanding is that the beaverkill was low and warm.

The mainstem was fishable, but nothing was going on. The WB was "coffee with creamer", as Andy put it.

JerseyGeorge caught a pig on a last minute streamer run.

That's too bad. The Delaware is definitely one fickle mother.
I'm on vacation again starting this sunday, and was hoping to maybe get back up there. But unless things change drastically, that'll be out

Pics??? Doesn't sound like the last two "jams" (Juniata & Catskill) have been very successful... Here's hoping the steelhead jam breaks the cycle!

None here. I realized I wasted too much time playing with the camera, and just concentrate on enjoying myself these days.

Close your eyes and picture pretty little wild rainbows on a stream about the size of penns. The hillsides are quickly approaching peak fall colors.

If I had the camera with me, that's what I would have posted.

Hey below is a note from Andy(sightnymph) ...since he couldn't post on the forum, he asked me to relay the following message:


------------------------------------------

Thank you to all that attended the Catskill JAM. In spite of less than ideal fishing conditions, we still had fun and a few fish were caught. We faced a 80 cfs release on the East Branch, 65 cfs of warm water on the Beaverkill and a high muddy release from the West Branch. Combine that with sunshine, near record highs and that all makes for bad fishing. Dave S made the longest drive of almost 7 hrs to attend. Thank you for doing so and I apologize that the fishing wasn’t better. List of attendees: JerseyGeorge, Trowpa, Josh, Andy, JayL, Jdaddy, Dave S, Troutmaster, Nickyboy and his buddy.


Coz at Border Water Outfitters did a nice job discussing the fishing options with our group. He was also kind enough to hold the raffle in his shop and draw the tickets. Another ‘thank you’ goes to Gene & Ines at the Capra Inn. They took great care of our group too. We’ll be back again in the spring.




Raffle Donations by:


Fish pond chest pack scotto (Potteiger-Stoltz Insurance Agency)

Furled leaders JayL

Fly box / 65 flies Andy (sight_nymph)

Fly plaques Josh

Scott A2 fly rod EsopusGuy

Reddington fly rod w/Ross reel Andy (sight_nymph)

Redsun was there too. Otherwise, that's about right.

I'd like to thank Andy for putting this on. It was a good time.

Nooooooooooo, you would have taken a picture of the dude who set up his stool, ripped his shirt off Fabio style and proceeded to serenade us as we lay on the banks like beached whales.
