The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls and the East Branch at Fishs Eddy peaked at 68 degrees yesterday The Mainstem at Lordville peaked over 70. They will peak higher today. It’s time to give these rivers a break again.

Today will be a hot one hitting 89 degrees. We do have a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon so keep an eye on the radar. The predicted rain amount doesn’t look bad at .19″ during the day with some additional rain overnight. With heat stick to the coldest river sections. There are a few sulphurs left with the olives. The algae situation hasn’t changed so if you’re nymphing stick to the lower West. Rain and heat are a great combination for flying ants so definiely keep a lookout for them this afternoon.
