Anybody going to the Current this weekend?

Recommended Posts

Flow near Montauk is dropping by the hour and is currently at 260 cfs(vs median of 125 cfs). 

 

 We won’t be fishing until tomorrow morning so I’m not sure what to expect as far as levels in 24 hours. 260 doesn’t seem high to me from a number standpoint but I haven’t fished the current enough to be able to put that into context.

 

 According to intel on this forum, 1,000 cfs is the high end of what guys want to fish further down the river towards Akers but I don’t see much info on what are more ideal levels near the park.

 

What should we expect in regards to the quality of the fishing? For those of you who have fished the Current more than I have, do you feel safe wading in these conditions? What is max flow you feel safe wading?

My neighbor is there now (Parker access) and yesterday he said the river looked like chocolate milk. He didn't even think of fishing it.

Usually at 260 and dropping you will continue to see more clarity and it should be wadeable. Streamers will be the game. When its stained and moving like it is now nymphs and dries rarely produce much in my experience. It has produced really well on streamers before however at that cfs. A lot of it just depends on water clarity. Hope this helps.

Pretty much on any of the trout streams below the parks, anything under 300 cfs is wadeable.  I've waded the Meramec up to about 400 cfs but there are a lot of places where you can't reach the good water.
