Catskill Fishing Report – May 27th, 2016

Beaverkill and Willowemoc: Both rivers were clear and wadeable and in good shape. There is a mix of Caddis, Sulphurs, March Browns and small spinners.  

Delaware East Branch: Was at a good fishing level with easy wading. March Browns were showing up, along with spinners and Sulphurs.  The water below East Branch is good Green Drake water, as well.   

Delaware West Branch: Best floated at last check. There were small BWOs, spinners, some Caddis and some Sulphurs. Most dry fly-fishing was happening in the afternoon.  

Esopus: Clear and wadeable. The portal was closed. This river generally does not get the heavy hatches of some other rivers but it is a great nymph fishing river. 

Neversink: At a decent fishing level. The gorge was fishable at the current level. March Browns were seen mostly below Bridgeville. There were also some Sulphurs and small Olives.

Delaware Main Stem: Has fished well this spring. It now is better floated, with wading very limited. As on other rivers there are March Browns and Sulphurs as well as some Olives.  Green Drakes usually emerge first on this river.
