The weatherman was wrong again but at least this time it was in our favor.  Instead of sun all afternoon the clouds rolled in and just stayed.  That made the bugs and the fish happier than they’ve been during the day in a while.  Nymphing was decent but there were fish on top eating March Browns, Gray Fox, and the odd Green Drake dun.  A few sulphurs mixed in for good measure.  The coffin flies are in the air but no one here saw them hit the water in decent numbers yet.  Today looks like sun with some wind.  The Beaverkill, Lower East Branch, and Mainstem are all clearing nicely.  The West Branch avoided the color completely and is great shape this morning.

Keep and eye out for these throughout the system
