Livingston Manor, Wednesday May 5, 8am
Current air temperature is 53 degrees and foggy. High temp of 61 degrees with clouds and showers
We had some rain last night that added a boost of water to the system. We are seeing multiple hatches throughout: Paraleps, Hendricksons/Red Quills, Blue Winged Olives, Black Caddis, Grey Caddis, Shad Caddis, Apple caddis, Tan caddis and perhaps yellow sallies are on the surface. There are a few March Browns appearing on the lower rivers. Look for rising fish to present dry flies. Fish the riffles and pocket water with caddis pupa, nymphs, and wets. In these high conditions streamers will be effective.
Reminder that the Main Stem and Neversink are further along in their hatches if you’re on the hunt for rising fish. The local rivers will follow suit.
Beaverkill / Willowemoc Rivers
The Willowemoc Valley received heavy rain last night, while the Beaverkill Valley had less rain. The Beaverkill below Junction Pool and the Willowemoc are turbid. Water temperature at Cooks Falls is 54 degrees with a flow of 1,240 cfs. Fish the section above Junction for the better conditions. Be cautious wading in other sections due to the high flow.
