Fishing conditions have been improving for the past two weeks with high water following the rain we had on October 14-15. Even as late as Thursday the 18th, high water levels made wading on the Big East Fork of the Pigeon above route 276 very difficult and one of the small feeder streams was not much better. As water levels have receded somewhat, flows have returned to near normal conditions in most streams and fishing on the South Toe on the 24th was quite pleasant, with air temps reaching the low 70s in many areas. Make sure to check water levels on our “Streamflows” page before you head out. Fish are still looking up for their meals and taking Adams and elk hair caddis dry flies, however expect that to change next week as a major cold front hits the area over the weekend bringing freezing temperatures at night even to areas in the valleys–Larry
