  • Ben Sheard River Report For 21-Apr-2015

    Posted on 21-Apr-2015 by Ben Sheard

    We got hit with a decent storm last night that brought the West Branch at Hale Eddy to 1,190 cfs but the cloud cover kept the evening temps warm and the starting temp is 48 degrees. Upriver we still have a flow of 90 cfs and the reservoir is up to 97.3% capacity which is bound to spill in the near future. The upper East at Harvard is still in the low 300's but the Beaverkill went back up to 1,500+ so Fish's Eddy is now 1,840. Yesterday morning was pretty nasty with wind so not a lot of anglers made it out but the evening straightened up a bit and there were quite a few Paraleps on the water as well as a few Chimarra caddis in size 18. The Black stones are still around but seem to be winding up as we head into the last week of April. The flows and turbidity are as ideal as it gets for streamers, not too high, not too dirty and semi-wadeable for those who know the river and very wadeable if you head up above Deposit. Darker baitfish imitations are gonna be your best bet today with the current clarity below Deposit. Water temps are pretty good today and it looks like it is going to cool down a bit over the next 48hrs. Lotsa' Luck

    Well, sorry for the late report but the terrible winds this am caused us to lose all power in the area until early afternoon. We did get some rain with the storms that started early this morning but there wasn't much accumulation. The rivers have continued to drop a bit over the last few days and the West is at 350 today with a temp of 51. The East is 226 at Harvard and below the Beaverkill is 1,300 cfs. The main is roughly 1,800 at the confluence and all rivers remain very clear. The bugs are still popping in decent numbers, more if the air temp is above 50 or so. The Little Black Stones are still around in decent numbers and the Paraleps and Quill Gordons are just getting started. The Hendrickson nymphs are very mature and we should start seeing the adults emerging over the next week or so. Nymphing has been the best bet lately with small stones, copper johns, pheasant tails and darker nymphs in the 14-18 range. The forecast looks like a chance of rain all week and the temps look to plummet starting Wednesday night into Thursday. This is typical mid-April fishing and weather so enjoy the uncrowded rivers while you can. Lotsa Luck
