  • Ben Sheard River Report For 20-Apr-2015

    Posted on 20-Apr-2015 by Ben Sheard

    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

    The rivers continue to drop at a steady pace as everything has dried out a lot over the last 5 sunny, warm days. The upper West is still flowing a sad 93 cfs while downriver at Hale Eddy the flow is 377 and has a temp of 47 degrees, fairly warm for a night near freezing. All of the rivers are also very clear despite their flow. The mainstem has really shaped up over the last few days and is probably slightly under 2,000 cfs at the confluence with a temp of 49 at Lordville. With the temps starting in the upper 40's it's not going to be long before we start to see some serious bug activity. Our hatches have been pretty much on schedule if you are referencing a hatch chart from the Northeast. We are still getting some decent Little Black Stones and as that hatch fades away we are starting to see some Blue Quills which are a staple of the early spring season. A few Quill Gordons have been spotted and the Hendricksons aren't far behind. The nymphs are about ready to explode so keep at it and enjoy yourself. Lotsa' Luck
