Yesterday felt like a normal summer day with mid day dry fly action closer to the dams and some on the lower West early and late in the day. Small sulphurs, cahills, and olives made up most of the hatch. Most people are fishing the small sulphurs. Today will star off cloudy. There are some potential thunderstorms in the afternoon but hopefully they slide around us like normal. 86 degrees with wind 5 – 10 mph from the South.
The East Branch at Fishs Eddy, the Beaverkill at Cooks Falls, and the Mainstem at Lordville all peaked over 70 degrees yesterday. Give these sections a break until we get cooler temps.
