Blanket hendricksons.
There were some caddis and blue quills yesterday but they were overshadowed by a memorable hendrickson hatch that covered some sections the water.  The fish were up and everything was right with the world.  There’s really not much more to say about yesterday.  The flows are dropping back – especially on the East Branch drainage and more water is becoming wadeable. The Beaverkill, Willowemoc, and Neversink are still the best wade bets but keep an eye on the Fishs Eddy gauge over the next few days as flows continue to drop.  Today looks nice with air temperatures in the 50’s, sun mixed with clouds, and winds under 10 mph.
