The weather during the last week of October and heading into November is about perfect - warm sunny afternoons coupled a good shot of water in the rivers from the recent rain showers has induced fall fishermen to head out to their favorite Special Regulations (No-Kill Catch-and-Release) stretches and cast a fly. We saw rising fish on the Willowemoc near Hazel over the weekend, and both the Beaverkill and Willowemoc look terrific - it's great to see such a good flow of water in the river again!

Although the Beaverkill is slowly receding from last Thursday's high water, today's flow of we are still just above the average flow of 444 cubic feet per second is still above the average flow of 355 cfs on this date of November 2 over 102 years of record-keeping.

Dry fly fishers may still find some action using tiny blue-winged olives, midges or caddis flies in the afternoons when the sun is on the water;  sub-surface fishing should be  productive using large wet flies and streamers, which imitate the young-of-the-year fingerlings.
