While we had clouds for most of yesterday we actually had fewer bugs.  The fish were happier though and we saw more consistent risers during the day.  A lot of bugs came off in the dark and the fish responded.  The front that moved in also dropped the air temperature which usually means slower bug activity.  Today looks good for fishing with some clouds, maybe a few quick storms, and air temps in the 70’s.  Last night’s rain was helpful but most of it was soaked right into the ground.  The Beaverkill  is still rising slightly this morning but looks fine on the USGS graph.
