The rivers fished well yesterday- lots and lots of Hendricksons on the building this morning.  Looks like a great mix of duns and spinners.  The weather held and the fish rose willingly.  Caddis were still everywhere but the fish loved the Hendricksons more.  Today looks like another warm day with some rain mixed in so keep and eye on the flows.  Cannonsville is currently 102.8% capacity.  The system is still dropping as a whole.  The Beaverkill and Willowemoc offer the best wading opportunities right now so we’ll watch what the rain does to us.
