We are finally seeing some cooler air temps again.  We’ll still be warm around 80 degrees today but it’s moving in the right direction.  There are some clouds this morning but more should be moving in through the afternoon.  Scattered thunderstorms so bring a raincoat just in case they hit us.  The amount of precipitation should be negligible around 1/10″.  Olives #18 -20, Stenos / Cahills #14, and Isonychias # 12 -14 should cover most of what you see.  Carry a few flying ants, sulphurs, and olive sulphurs just in case.  It looks like the clouds and rain will stick around through the weekend.  Hopefully that will keep the olives on the water longer offering the fish a better chance to eat them.

The tailwaters are in good shape but the Beaverkill peaked over 70 degrees at Cooks Falls yesterday.  It is starting off at 68 degrees this morning.  Skip that river and fish cold water.
