    After a weekend of decent streamer activity all of the local rivers are dropping and clearing at a pretty consistent rate. The overall clarity of most of the local streams is excellent with at least 4 ft of visibility, sometimes more. The West is now 2,120 cfs up at Stilesville, about 600 cfs of that is flow coming over the top of the dam, the other 1,500 is bottom-released. The Hale Eddy flow dropped about 300 cfs in the last 24 hours bringing it to 2,400. The upper East Branch at Harvard is down to 1,880 cfs and below the Beaverkill the flow is 2,740. The Main Delaware at Lordville is 6,290 with a temp of 44, the warmest in the area. The Beaverkill is flowing at 929 cfs offering a little bit of wading if boat access isn't an option. The streamer fishing has been pretty good to average depending on where you are floating and skill level / fly selection, a few key factors. Baitfish imitations, tied as realistic as possible, are working well when fished properly. Lots of follows and few hookups are indicative of unrealistic flies. Getting looks and rolling fish are easy, hooking up is the key. There have been decent numbers of Little Black Stones in size 16-20 as well as some Blue Quills in size 16-18 with a few fish looking up on most days. The dry fly fishing should get good sometime in the near future if we don't get hit with more rain. The river's volume, temperature and bug activity are starting to line up and the hatches are on "schedule" for this time of year. Enjoy this week's solitude as its gonna get busy for a while starting this weekend. Lotsa' Luck

    Well, as I'm sure everyone knows what a roller-coaster of a week we've had since the weekend's beautiful weather. The rain we've got has caused Cannonsville reservoir to spill bringing the flow at Stilesville to 2,700cfs with a temp of 39. As for the alwives that sometimes come over with the spill, we really don't know yet. It just started to spill yesterday and today will be our first guide trips since the spill. One thing we are sure about is this is "real" streamer water that we all dream about. These conditions are for big fish and driftboats, wade fishing will be out of the question for a while on all local rivers. Downriver at Hale Eddy the flow is 3,510cfs with a temp of 40. The clarity of the river is pretty nice up around Deposit and south of Oquaga Creek the south side of the river is pretty stained. Down from there the visibility is a few feet or more, definitely enough for some good streamer fishing. The East Branch is 5,700 and the main is 11,500 at Lordville with a temp of 41. As the rivers drop we'll keep you posted on anything in the area that is near-wadeable, for now it's a driftboat water. 'Lotsa Luck
