Yesterday was another good one to be on the water.  The bugs were there and the fish were up.  We had a little more sun that we wanted in the afternoon but it felt good to fish in a t shirt.  The fish are getting a little more picky with all the traffic out there so presentation is becoming even more important.  Hendricksons, blue quill, and some apple caddis.  Definitely carry spinner patterns with you now.The flows are dropping back slowly.  The Beaverkill dropped below 1,000 cfs offering some wade opportunities.  Today looks nice at 71 degrees with some cloud cover.  Winds will be 10 -15 from the South.
