Conditions remain good for this time of year, with good water levels and reasonably mild daytime temperatures. We have had some cold nights, so don't feel like you have to get out on the river right away in the morning. Sometimes it helps to let the water warm a bit. Subsurface techniques are still the best way to go, with nymphs and streamers producing fish right now. They are calling for rain today, so we will have to wait and see what effect it has on water levels.

TIP OF THE WEEK - Don't get too hung up on fishing dry flies, you will have more opportunities if you are fishing subsurface. Be patient while on the river, as water temps cool over the next few weeks you will need to cover the water more thoroughly.
The Beaverkill & Willowemoc Rivers - Both rivers are in very good shape for this time of year. Remember, the BK is closed upstream from the 206 bridge, and the Willow is closed above the bridge near Parkston.
The East Branch of the Delaware River - The river is wadeable and in nice shape today. The EB is open from the Shinhopple bridge downstream, and it is all catch and release now.
The West Branch of the Delaware & Delaware River- Both rivers are in good shape for this time of year with wading available. You could see some scattered olives, but fish are mostly chasing big streamers right now. The upper sections of the WB are closed, so stick to the border waters.
