Housatonic last Thursday, it was high then and still fairly high now. I'd go with the Farmington right now.
I'm heading over to Phoenicia tomorrow to shut down the house and get in one last whack at the Esopus in 2014.
All in all, a very good fishing year.

Gene.......i'll be on the Farmington tomorrow WEDNESDAY 11/5.......I hit it last Tuesday and the dry fly action was still there albeit you had to search the risers out my final fish of that day was my biggest a 18" brown that took a soft hackle as the sun was setting I am looking to get a solid 10 hours of stalking in my car is a Toyota rav4 with some trout stickers on it say hello if you see me I'd like to say hello to you on the river bank and if you are going in the a,m. have some winter caddis which are coming off at first light per upcountry fly shop

Hey gene...sorry i missed you yesterday was a beautiful day I took some river pics and a few pics of some browns I caught - but I clearly noticed that surface activity has slowed down quite alot from what I was used to.... I actually had to search, wait and stalk some risers they were not as carefree as usual.

Heading up to the Esopus this coming weekend for what will more than likely be my last trip until next Spring. Will post a report afterwards.
In a relationship with a woman and have some obligations with her after this weekend that'll tie me up till then. She is just too damned good a cook to lose.

Gene....certainly can't complain with hooking into four .......I started on the west side in the morning and then before noon I was above the bridge in Riverton fishing the Westbranch...Beaver pool.... my entire afternoon was spent on the east side of the river - below Matthis park.
Brooklyn.....no question the female persuasion will cut down on your fishing time I'm engaged with a May 16th wedding date......and my fiancée doesn't understand why missing the Hendrickson hatch is such a big deal ???

I was going to start a topic but you did it for me Gene, good reports from those who are still fishing.. if i lived closer I'd be up there trying but , winterized my camper.. I haven't made it up since.. I was hoping to read reports from the Esopus.. i use to go there every season around Halloween for them smart resi runners but think not any good as use to be, but still miss the scene and still love that place in Nov... it changed however over the decades .. was hoping to get up somewhere .. I think if i were to really want nice chance for trout to c/r it would have to be the w.branch .. i may decide to visit the hancock pools up and below the junction where both eb/wb intersect. that is my thought anyway for best odds for day trip here is hoping for more indian summer days .. Freeze is just around the corner.

I fished the Farmington yesterday and I can tell my season is done.....I usually kill on that river but the surface activity was not that great. I should have known the day was going to be cursed when I landed a nice brown on my first cast with a new parachute black ant I've been experimenting with. I only saw one rise about 5 minutes previously....and got into position to where I remembered the general area of the rise was - First cast he slams it in almost slack water......and I thought it was going to be a banner day (at least I felt the fly was validated) the rest of the day I basically searched out for some risers........3 fish hooked.....none of which I brought to net - so my first cast brown was my only one. For now I'll focus on reading some of the fly fishing books I recently bought and will try to get to the arts of the angler show this coming weekend...
