The nice weather continues today, and it should help the hatches. Quill Gordons are starting to show up, and I saw some fish rising to caddis on the Willowemoc yesterday. As far as wading conditions go, it doesn't get a whole lot easier than this so you will have plenty of options when it comes to places to fish.

TIP OF THE WEEK - Nymphs and streamers have still been the most productive way to fish, but dry fly action has been picking up. Be sure to have some Caddis, Quill Gordons, Blue Quills, and Hendricksons in your box in case you run into rising fish.
The Beaverkill & Willowemoc Rivers - Both rivers have plenty of wading, and we've seen some decent caddis hatches. The Quill Gordons and Paraleps have been starting to show in better numbers as well, and Hendricksons could pop any day now.
The East Branch of the Delaware River - Is clear and has good wading right now...in fact it is low enough to make fish a bit skittish in spots. Quill Gordons, Paraleps, and Caddis have all been hatching.
The West Branch of the Delaware & Delaware River- Both rivers are in good shape right now, and they are usually the first to see strong hatches of mayflies. Trout have been rising to Blue Quills and and some Quill Gordons lately, and the WB is probably your best bet for dry fly action.
