We had more rain yesterday but rather than short lived heavy rain we saw a more steady light rain in the afternoon.  The West Branch flow is starting off this morning pretty much where it was yesterday morning at 1,200 cfs.  That should fall slowly throughout the day.  The Beaverkill flow jumped up to 900 cfs but is already dropping this morning.  We have some rain in today’s forecast but the total precipitation should be around 1/10th” during the day and about the same amount overnight.  Wind will be 5 – 10 from the South.  Looks like a good day to be on the water.  Caddis have been the main fish food over the last couple of days but we are seeing the end of the small hendricksons and the beginning of the gray foxes and march browns.  We’ve seen a few sulphurs so definitely have that box with you.
