I'm leaving on a jet plane - - -

Posted on June 29 2018

Today was change over day.  Cleaned the camp, packed my fly tying equipment and "Owyhee River " fly boxes and headed home.  Will be on a plane Sunday morning flying  to Oregon for a weeks fishing on the Owyhee River tailwater. 

A week ago I said if the trip wasn't prepaid, I'd gladly give it up to stay and fish the Delaware.  Now, with the weeks weather forecast in front of me, I'm not so sure about that.  It's going to be hot here,  clearly the BR, EB and the BK will be out of bounds (they were all over 70 today) with the heat wave to begin tomorrow.  The UEB below Harvard will also make it into the "Do Not Fish " category for the next week. Hopefully the DEC will use some of the thermal bank to keep the WB and a little of the BR below 70.

Many of the Troutfitter regulars will be spending next week in Montana trying to find fishable water.  Those of you who plan on being home next week in New York should do so in an air conditioned room tying sulfurs, tricos and olives.  There will be better days to fish when the heat wave abates.

Hope to see you on the river the week of the 8th.
