The reservoir spills are essentially over. Cannonsville is only spilling 25 cfs this morning. The release is 1,499 cfs. We’ll stay high until they cut the release back. Hopefully they are creating a small void and drop us back to normal releases soon. The Beaverkill and Willowemoc are in the great shape for wading. The tailwaters are still best fished from a boat. The lower water should definitely help the dry fishing. It’s mostly stoneflies and little black caddis but have some dark blue winged olives with you just in case. Nymphing and streamers are still your best bet – especially if the wind picks up.
Today will be nicer than yesterday hitting 69 degrees with sunshine. We may get some clods in the afternoon along with the wind 10 – 20 mph from the West.
