Hendricksons, olives, and apple caddis.  There was an unbelievable amount of bugs out there yesterday.  Some of the fish were eating on top, some of the fish were eating underneath.  Some were easy, some were tough.  It was a fun day to be on the water.  Hendrickson emergers worked well but there were a lot of egg laying caddis around.  Today will be mostly sunny, 72 degrees, with wind around 5 mph.  It’s going to be a beautiful day on the water.  The Beaverkill flow has dropped back to a decent wading level and looks good.  The release from Cannonsville Dam has been dropped to 1190 cfs with only 91 cfs coming over the spillway.  We may see a few thunderstorms tomorrow  bu they are usually wrong about that.  It does mean we should have some decent cloud cover.  The precipitation forecast is only .12″ so it should do much to the flows.
