Yesterday ended up being a good day on the water.  Fewer bugs than the day before but there were enough olives, caddis, and isonychias to get the fish to eat occasionally in the riffles.  If you saw one pop you could target they were pretty willing to eat on top.  Today looks pretty similar to yesterday with good cloud cover, 64 degrees, and wind 5 – 10 mph from the South.  We have some rain coming but that should hold off until after dark with more coming tomorrow during the day.


The border water on the West Branch and Mainstem are open to fishing year round.  The Upper West that flows only in NY is closed.  That puts it roughly around the Beaver Mountain Log Homes display on Rte 17.  The lower EB stays open until November 30th.  Check here for exact regulations:
