Fishing Overview: Fall season is shaping up to be a good one. Look for sporadic caddis and olives to bring the occasional fish to the surface. Nymphing smaller bugs and anything green has been productive.

Specifics and Tips: Terrestrials (ants, beetles, inchworm patterns) have been the ticket. Falling temps, high water and fish moving into pre-spawn make for ripe streamer conditions.

Conservation Note: ANGLERS VISITING OUR AREA: Specifically those of you who just fished the Delaware River (or other streams in the NY Catskill Region), the Farmington in Connecticut, or Maryland's Gunpowder River, Please clean your boots and waders with a diluted bleach solution OR hot water(must be over 140 degrees f) and laundry detergent - It must soak for at least 30 minutes to be effective. DIDYMO has been identified in these watersheds. Another option is to purchase a second pair of boots and waders to wear only in infected waters. It's the only sure way not to spread DIDYMO. Please be responsible - Don't spread DIDYMO TO Central Pennsylvania!
