Daily Fishing Report

Due to the demand of the new location we are sorryto say we have not been recording the Daily Call in Report. 

August 20th - Area Overview 

Due to the extreme air and water temperatures we are asking anglers to please be mindful of these conditions and not trout fish the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, Lower East Branch and Main Stem when water temperatures are 70 degrees or higher.

The thermal stress is enough to kill trout in these conditions. They are amazing survivors, but only if anglers leave them alone till conditions improve.

We are more then willing and happy to help anglers find cold water on the East Branch, West Branch and Neversink. We are truly spoiled in the fishing options the area has to offer even when conditions are at their extremes. 

Today's forecast is for high of 75 degrees. Partly Sunny. Cooler in the low 70s this week. Unfortunately there is another half inch of rain predicted between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

The rivers are high from the rain, with the tailwaters spilling

Isonychias and sulphurs are hatching throughout the system.

Beaverkill / Willowemoc Rivers

The Beaverkill and WIllowemoc are on the drop. They are still high but fishing heavy streamers and sinking lines are a possibility. Higher up the systems the better, small streams further up always fish great in high water.

Bugs are currently Isonychia (8 - 12), Yellow Drakes (8), Sulphurs (14 - 16) Cahills (12 - 14), Tan Caddis (14 - 18), Green Caddis (16), Summer Paraleps (18), Midges & Olives (18+)
