Catskills Fishing Report – October 5th, 2012

At last look, both the Beaverkill and Willowemoc were clear and wadeable. Water temps were dropping. Nymphs fished in the pocket water have been effective. Hatches are now mid to late day, usually caddis or small olives. The East Branch of the Delaware was wadeable and in good shape, with some small olives, midges and Isonychias seen later in the day. Terrestrials have also been effective. Cloudy weather on any of the tailwaters usually means good olive hatches. The Neversink was also fishable. with nymphs and terrestrials are working well. Olives and caddis are important fall hatches on the river, too. The Main Stem of the Delaware was at an ideal wade or float flow as of last week. Olives are the major hatch there but nymphs especially stonefly nymphs – can be effective in the pocket water. The Esopus above the portal may be a place to try with the cooler weather.
