Yesterday was another good one to be on the water.  The bugs were there and the fish were up.  We had a little more sun that we wanted in the afternoon but it felt good to fish in a t shirt.  The fish are getting a little more picky with all the traffic out there so presentation is becoming even more important.  Hendricksons, blue quill, and some apple caddis.  Definitely carry spinner patterns with you now.The flows are dropping back slowly.  The Beaverkill dropped below 1,000 cfs offering some wade opportunities.  Today looks nice at 71 degrees with some cloud cover.  Winds will be 10 -15 from the South.

Yesterday fished well.  Hendricksons, blue quills, and apple caddis (the caddis are on some sections of river- not others).  The clouds stuck around all day and even when the sky looked really threatening the rain held off and the wind stayed low.  Some of the fish are getting picky so presentation is playing a bigger role each day.  We are finding some spinners so keep an eye out for spinner falls even during the hatch.  Today’s forecast looks great.  Winds light and variable, sunshine, and an air temp near 70 degrees.  We’d like to see a few more clouds stick around but it’s going to be a beautiful day out there.  We had just enough rain fall that the river flows are pretty much the same as yesterday morning.

Yesterday was a good day on the river.  We didn’t see blanket hatches but there were enough hendricksons and blue quills on the water to get the fish looking up.  Some of the lower river sections had decent apple caddis hatches too.  People were set up on fish most of the afternoon.  Wathc the rise forms carefully.  Some fish were eating emergers under the surface while others were concentrating on dead caddis.  The hatches are overlapping now wiht quite a few different bugs coming off at the same time.  Spinners are around too.
We have some light rain falling this morning but it shouldn’t be enough to move the river flows much.  Total precipitation should be around .18″.  Wind will be 4 – 5 mph from the South with an air temp of 60 degrees.  It looks like another really good day to be on the water.

Yesterday was an absolutely awesome day to be on the water.  It really didn’t seem to matter what section of river you were on- there were bugs and fish rising consistently.  Hendricksons and blue quills with a fair number of caddis were hatching.  We were hit by two rain showers that did not seem to affect the fishing at all.  Both were heavy but short.  The rivers had a bit of color in them after the morning storm but that didn’t slow down the bugs or fish.  We had more rain overnight so the flows are up a bit this morning.   The West Branch looks clear and fine this morning.  Keep an eye on the graphs today especially if you’re planning to wade.  That’s still tough on the bigger rivers but possible on the Beaverkill and Willowemoc.  Today looks really great with good cloud cover, light wind from the North, and an air temp hitting 62.

It was really nice fishing in a t shirt yesterday afternoon.  That was a great day to be on the water.  Decent hendricksons and blue quills,- plus the caddis hatch is starting.  The fish were happy for most of the day.  A lot of people took advantage of the weather report and were rewarded.  Today will be nice with the air temp in the low 60’s, decent cloud cover, and some scattered showers in the afternoon.  We’ll have some rain moving in but the majority of it should fall after dark.  We may see half an inch but hopefully some of the storms slip below us.  The trees are really leafing out now so hopefully they will suck up a lot of water- plus offer some wind protection from here forward.  Winds around 7 mph from the South.  Sounds like another good day.  The flows are dropping.  We’d like to see them come down a bit more to open up more wading opportunities but there are a few people out there trying it in spots.

Yesterday’s wind gusts were a bit higher than we originally saw in the forecast but the bugs hatched and the fish were happy.  There were some calmer periods that fished well and a few times the wind gusts made things diffcult.  Hendricksons and blue quills made up most of the menu.  If Wunderground’s forecast is even close to correct today should be really good.  The air temp should hit 70 degrees, cloud cover, .01″ of rain, and wind 5 mph from the North.  That great a forecast gives them a huge margin of error to work with and still have great weather out there.  The Beaverkill flow at Cooks Falls is 888 cfs and still falling.  There is water that works well for waders at these levels.  A few people are even getting out in some spots on the West Branch and Upper Mainstem.

There were Hendricksons, blue quills and caddis hatching yesterday.  The fish were eating them.  The fishing was a little slower than Monday but it was still really good.  There was a decent number of bugs and fish.  You can get spoiled and picky up here. Yesterday’s cooler water temperatures may have held some of the hatching back.  The nice thing about the Spring mayflies is they are hardy.  Once the start hatching the intensity of the hatch will vary day to day but they will keep hatching.  Today looks similar to yesterday with good cloud cover and an air temp in the low to mid 50’s.  Winds will be 12 from the South.  We’re going to warm up a bit beginning tomorrow with some chances of rain over the weekend.  The Beaverkill has dropped below 1,000 cfs so there are places to wade over there.  The main rivers are dropping slowly as the the runoff and spills subside.

It took a little while for things to get going yesterday but once it warmed up the bugs hatched in good numbers and the fish ate. Hendricksons, blue quills, and some caddis were on the menu.  We’re starting to see some spinners a little before dark.  On a warm day they may even fall in the afternoon so look at the rise forms carefully.  April has had some pretty wild weather but we are finishing on a high note.  We’ll be close to 60 degrees today, cloudy, winds of 5 – 10 mph out of the North.  This should be a great day to be on the water.  We had some light rain overnight into this morning but it wasn’t enough to change the flows.  All of the rivers are still dropping slowly.  The Beaverkill bumped slightly and is at 1,100 cfs.  Wading is best on the upper reaches of the Willowemoc and Beaverkill.  The main Beaverkill should be in decent shape in the next day or two.

The rain was light but pretty steady for most of yesterday.  And the bugs hatched again in the afternoon.  Overall the people who braved the weather were rewarded. Streamers worked but a lot of fish were caught on top in the afternoon.   Hendricksons, blue Quills, and a few Quill Gordons were hatching.  You will see some little black caddis and stoneflies but most of the fish seem to be looking for the mayflies.  Many others of us were waiting for the much, much nicer weather today will bring.  Today will reach the mid 50’s, sunshine, with winds around 5 mph.  Hopefully we’ve seen the last of the frost and snow.  The long range shows pretty nice temperatures coming our way.  The main rivers are still too high to wade but some up the upper reaches of the Beaverkill and Willowemoc should be fine.  The flows are dropping slowly due to yesterdays rain but are headed in the right direction.

We had some decent rain, snow, and wind yesterday.  We also had bugs.   Most people who stuck it out went with streamer fishing but the dry fly fishing was a really nice surprise.  You needed the right combination of wind protection, bugs, and water slow enough for the fish to set up.  Overall we all would have bet on streamers.  It was cold overnight so the river temps are starting off a little colder this morning.  We have some rain in the forecast but should see less than 1/4″ total for the day.  Today will be a lot like yesterday with a cooler air temp and a cold night.  So, like yesterday, layer up with every fleece you have in your bag.  We start to warm back up tomorrow.

Yesterday was windy with rain.  Fish were caught even on dry flies but overall it was a tough day to be on the water.  The real heavy bands of rain moved in after 6 pm and then river flows started climbing.  The West Branch flow has peaked and has started to fall but we’ll likely see another bump up as the spill increases today.  The West is off color but not totally blown out.  It is fishable from a boat.  It looks like a streamer day.  The inflow at Walton is 2,430 cfs and climbing this morning.

The air temperature will be lower for the next two days peaking in the mid 40’s.  We’ll have some showers and maybe even a little snow between this morning and Monday.  Crazy April weather in the Catskills.  Wading is not an option on any of the main rivers but you may find some wadeable water on the feeder streams or up in the headwaters.  It is safe to float.

Yesterday was a good combination of bugs, weather, and reasonable water levels for the fish.  The fish seemed to be happy eating off the surface with the dropping flows and light winds.  People caught fish on streamers, nymphs, and dry flies.  It was nice to hear the success stories all around last night.  Blue Quills, little black caddis, and some hendricksons made up most of the food.  Change up your streamer colors if you’re not moving fish.  The fish seem to change their mind on what they want every day.  We had some rain overnight but so far the rivers are still dropping.  The Beaverkill has dropped down to 882 cfs this morning- great news for the waders.  We have more rain in the forecast today and tonight.  The exact amount keeps changing but right now they have decreased the forecasted amount to .75″ which is way better than they were calling for yesterday.  If any flows change drastically we’ll do a mid day update.
