Catskill Fishing Report – September 20th, 2013
Beaverkill/Willowemoc: Low and clear as of last weekend. Some midges, small Olives and some Isonychias are about generally late in the day. Off-color water can be a problem on areas of the Beaverkill due to the roadwork on Old 17, but not on weekends when they are not working.
Delaware West Branch: Floatable and wadeable. Fishing well for September. Some scattered Tricos are about in the a.m. while small Olives, “orange Caddis” and a few other Caddis are about in the afternoons.
Delaware East Branch: Clear and wadeable at last look. Some decent Olive hatches and Tricos are present in the morning. Some Isonychias are about close to dark. Try a hopper during non-hatch situations.
Delaware Main Stem: Floatable and wadeable. The current level allows for effective nymph fishing.
Neversink: Some Caddis and small Olives are about later in the day. There are some Isonychias in the Gorge. More Caddis and small Olives close to dark. Gorge has fished well with attractor dries and terrestrials.
Esopus: Clear above the portal. Below the portal there is still some color but it is fishable with some Caddis and Isonychias.
