The olives have been pretty consistent in the afternoon offering some decent dry fly fishing. Nymphing is your best bet early but by 3 pm we’ve been finding risers. The West Branch flow is still a bit low but it is steady. The Lower East Branch and Mainstem have dropped a bit- another day or two should put them in good shape. The Beaverkill has dropped a bit more and has more wade opportunities today. Along with the olives have a couple Heptagenia, Isonychias, and caddis handy. But it’s really been the olives.
Today will be 62 degrees with a partly cloudy sky. Wind will be 5 – 10 mph from the South.
