We had some thunderstorms pass through in the evening that brought some rain. The West Branch flows did not budge and the river looks fine this morning. The Beaverkill and East Branch flows are up a bit. So everything should fish the same with no real change. Afternoon sulphurs on the coldest river sections with some cahills and Isonychias. The lower West should fish with nymphs and wets early with sulphurs, cahills, and a few isonychias coming in the evening. Caddis are still around so have a few patterns with you. On the lower West we’re seeing most of them in the morning. Today will be cooler hitting 82 degrees. We’ll start off with sun but see some clouds move in during the afternoon. there is another chance of thunderstorms. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the North.
The East Branch at Fishs Eddy, The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, and the Mainstem at Lordville all peaked close to 70 degrees yesterday. It’s time to give these sections a break until we get cooler temps.
