We had some more rain this morning.  The Mainstem and Lower East Branch both have some color but the West Branch looks good.  Most of the color seems to be coming off the Beaverkill / Willowemoc.  The color seemed to get the fish interested in streamers in some areas which was a nice change of pace.  The fish seemed interested in feeding on top in both the clear water and the dirty water to a mix of March Browns, Gray Fox, Green Drakes, Sulphurs, and tan Caddis.
