We ended up with some decent showers yesterday but they were brief and barely caused a bump in flows.  We did find fair numbers of olives right after the storms.  Sulphurs and isonychas hatched later on some stretches.  Nymphing and swinging wet flies has been working during the day.  Look for decent riffles with good drop offs offering the fish some protection.  The weather is going to be clear and warmer today.  Pick an afternoon spot that gives you early shade and be patient.  The upcoming week looks great with good cloud cover and light rain.

We’ve had a few brief showers but the rivers are essentially in the same shape as yesterday.  The West Branch is in the best shape with a release of 600 cfs this morning.  The cold release is keeping the water temperatures low throughout it’s length.  We are still fishing the same mix of small olives, sulphus, cahills, and isonychias.  There are some caddis around but they seem over shadowed by the little olives.  Nymphing and swinging wet flies have been productive during the day.  Dry fly fishing has been better during cloud cover, in shaded areas, and before or after the sun hits the water.  We should have some clouds around today with the possibility of very light rain mid day.  We’ll be a bit cooler with air temperatures in the 70’s.  The lower East Branch, lower Beaverkill, and Mainstem are all warm so definitely check those with your thermometer before fishing.

We’ve had a bit of rain this morning but it looks like most of it has soaked into the ground.  The creeks are clear, the Beaverkill and East Branch have actually dropped a bit, and the West Branch is steady with just over 600 at Hale Eddy.  It definitely looks like an olive day with the overcast sky and light intermittent rain.  We may see a little over 1/4″ today but most of the storms have been tracking north of us lately.  We should also see a few more sulphurs and isonychias hatching during the day if the weather holds.  Winds look great today peaking around 8  mph.  It looks like it will be a really good day to be on the river.  West Branch water temperatures look great.  The lower East Branch, lower Beaverkill, and lower Mainstem are all peaking a little high to fish for trout so check them with a thermometer before you start.  Water temperatures in Callicoon look great for smallmouth if you’re looking for something different to do.

The release from Cannonsville has been dropped back to 600 cfs, still making for great wading and floating on the West Branch. The lower East Branch, Beaverkill and the Main Stem are still warm. If the weather forecast is to be believed, there should be clouds developing this afternoon with a possibility of some thunderstorms. The rainfall amounts look minor and probably won’t affect the levels. Sulphurs, olives, cahills, and isonychias continue to be the most prevalent hatches.

The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 700 cfs. The level is good for both wading and floating and the increase will keep the West Branch cool. The lower East Branch, Beaverkill and Main Stem are warm, check the temperature with a thermometer first if you’re fishing for trout. Today looks like another sunny, warm day – get out there early or stay past dark if you can. Sulphurs, olives, cahills, and isonychias are still the hatches of choice.

Happy Fourth of July! Yesterday’s sun made the fish wary. Look in the shaded areas for rising fish and use stealth when approaching them. Blind casting in the riffles and along the seams can produce fish. Check your sub-surface flies often for algae if you’re fishing higher up in the system. Today’s weather looks like a carbon copy of yesterday’s with sun and light winds. We’re seeing the same mix of sulphurs, olives, cahills, and isonychias out there with some hatching earlier in the day.

The release from Cannonsville has been dropped to 500 cfs this morning.  This is a great level for both wading and floating so we are in good shape this morning.  Water temperatures are decent on the West Branch due to the cold water release.  There was the usual mix of sulphurs, olives, cahills, and isonychias but the hatches seemed a bit spread out.  Blind fishing isonychias and cahills in the riffles produced some fish and nymphing was decent in the fast runs and drop offs.  Today should be a nice day on the water with partly cloudy skies and air temperatures in the upper 70’s.  The lower Beaverkill, lower East Branch, and Mainstem at Lordville are all staring off at 67 degrees this morning so if you’re near those areas use a thermometer before you fish.

Once again it seems most of the big storms brushed us as they slid north of us.  We had a couple heavy showers but they ended up being very short lived.  Most of the precipitation seemed to soak right into the ground and everything looks fine in Hancock this morning.  We had the usual mix of bugs with a few more olives out there.  We did have a few periods of sunshine but luckily they were brief and the clouds were around most of the day.  Today looks like another good day to be on the water.  We should have some clouds come in by early afternoon with rain only totalling 0.18″.  If the forecast is close to being correct today it should fish well.  The release from Cannonsville is 699 cfs.

We did have a few showers yesterday and the flows jumped a bit on the Beaverkill, Upper East Branch, and the West Branch above Cannonsville.  The West Branch below the dam looks great this morning and is cold.  The release from Cannonsville is 699 cfs.  Olives, sulphurs, and cahills seem to be the most common hatches with some isonychias thrown in for good measure.  There are still some caddis over the riffles mid day with an occasional fish getting a shot at them.  Streamer fishing has picked up a bit with the higher flows but is still best in low light conditions or after dark.  The lower Beaverkill, lower East Branch, and Lower Mainstem have temperatures spiking around 70 degrees.  They are starting off high this morning already so if you are fishing anywhere besides the West Branch check the water with a thermometer.  We may see some additional rain this morning but the storms seem to be tracking north of us for the most part.  Wunderground has downgraded the forecasted precipitation by half since yesterday.  We may see a little more than 1/4″ which should be fine.

The West Branch release was raised again yesterday afternoon and is now 699 cfs.  Still a decent level for wading and floating.  We had a few passing showers but the most of the precipitation has soaked into the ground and the East Branch and Beaverkill dropped slightly overnight.  We may see some storms this afternoon but we’re taking a wait and see attitude on the forecasts this season.  The cloud cover looks great this morning and there were some fish landed already.  If you don’t find fish rising either nymph the drop offs or blind cast an isonychia or cahill in the riffles.  It looks like we could see decent olives today so definitely pack those in #18 – 26.  Caddis and spinners should round out the patterns for the weekend.  We’ve seen some small olive spinners on the water mid day so look closely if you see fish rising but no bugs.

The release from Cannonsville has been increased to 600 cfs. This is a great level for wading and floating.  This is great timing to protect the river too as we head back into warmer air temperatures.  We should see highs in the low 80’s over the next few days and the nights will stay in the 60’s.  The colder water from the release should push some of the sulphur, olive,  and isonychia hatches.  There are still a lot of caddis around but they have been slow in the early morning waiting for the temperatures to warm up.  We should see a mix of sun and clouds today but the weater looks great for fishing through the weekend.  Cloudy with a chance of storms and some rain.  The weather forecasts seem very unreliable this season.  We’ve seen rain on days that were supposed to be clear and sun on days that were forecasted rain so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Yesterday’s weather was an odd mix.  We had clouds, very brief heavy downpours, sun, and even a little hail.  The rivers barely bumped form the rain and everything looks good this morning.  The cool nighttime temperatures have kept the water temps in check and we are starting off a couple of degrees cooler this morning.  The rain did push some olives (#20 -26) and there were decent numbers of them in spots.  There were some sulphurs, isonychias, and caddis in the mix too.  We have been seeing a decent number of olive spinners in the afternoons so definitely have a few handy.  Today’s forecast is calling  for clear skies with air temperatures in the low 70’s.  Winds should be manageable gusting to 10 mph and then dropping during prime time.
