Yesterday was another good day of strong hendrickson hatches.  Again we saw decent numbers of caddis and blue quills but the hendricksons overshadowed them.  We are also beginning to see some March Browns on some sections so things are really looking good for the next few days.  Flows are still dropping back slowly but more water is wadeable each day.  Floating is still the best option the West but the East side and Beaverkill system are beginning to look real good.  Air temperatures will be close to 60 today, winds around 5 mph, and good cloud cover.  Things look really good today.
