Catskills Fishing Report – August 8th, 2014

Beaverkill/Willowemoc: Small nymphs and terrestrials have been effective. The Horton area is now closed to fishing as a thermal refuge area for the fish.

Delaware West Branch: A decent Sulphur hatch most days. The “slop” can make nymph fishing the upper reaches impossible. There are also some small BWOs and spinners often mixed with Sulphurs. 

Delaware Main Stem: Decent water temps past Lordsville. Hatches are mainly close to dark. Fishing the riffles with nymphs has produced. 

Neversink: Wadeable and at a normal flow for summer. Small Olives are a major hatch on this river and are usually present either early or late, at times mixed with caddis. Terrestrials can be very effective.   Water temps are currently not a problem in the normal trout zone.

Delaware East Branch: Tricos should be going strong at midmorning.

Esopus: Some Sulphurs and Isonychias are about close to dark.
