For daytime dry fly activity look for sulphurs in the coldest river sections with some cahills and Isonychias. Mainly sulphurs. There are a few caddis around in the morning along with some left over spinners in the bigger pools. The lower river sections had some small sulphurs hatching a little earlier than we expected. A few cahills, and small olives were mixed in but it was mainly about the sulphurs down here too. We have cloud cover this morning but that should burn off and turn to sunshine. It’ll hit 82 degrees with wind 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.
