Water Conditions:

Flows are at 148 CFS as of November 7 and will stay this way for the time being.

These flows just about perfect. Water temps in the 50's the afternoon. Air temps are in the 70-80 range, very comfortable.

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good

Fishing is good and no crowds. Look for slower water and eddies to find fish, but during the hatches midday the riffles are producing as well. Decent hatches midday and into the afternoon.

Recommended Flies:

#22 Barr's female trico emerger, #20-22 trico spinnerfall patterns (nymphed or fished dry fly).

Wet Emergers, #22 Surface Emergers, #22 Hares ears, Tan Bird's Nest and Barr's BWO emergers flashback or regular #20-22.

Guides Hint: This is a great time of year to fish from the outside banks. Look for fish behind pieces of collapsed bank material. Stay low and make short drifts with small Midge, Trico and Baetis patterns.
