Fly Fishing Report for the Upper Delaware and Catskill Rivers

May 21, 2018

Guide Calabrese's client with a beauty on the east branch.

 

 

Even with the high water from the few rain storms we had, our clients have had great days filled with catching a lot of big fish. Yesterday proved to be one of the better days on the system. All of our guides had clients in the double digits with fish in the boat.

The East and West are fishing good, with good hendrickson's hatches at the top. There was a spinner fall from about noon to night fall yesterday and the fish were on them. 

There are sightings of good March Browns with reports of fish eating them. 

The Beaver Kill and Willow are a little high and muddy from the rain on Saturday but the conditions are slowly improving.

Wade fishing today can prove to be tough with the high water situation all over the system. 

Yesterdays fly selection consisted of Hendo cripples,knockdowns and comparaduns. Spinners were getting eating all day yesterday as well. Right now a size 16 hackle wing rusty spinner has been working well. Also our High-Vis spinner is working very well for the last night time casts. 

Tis also the season to start thinking about mouse and frog fishing. Guide Matt caught a nice brown mousing into the night. Be sure to call and book a mouse trip.

This season we expect the spring insect hatches to run much longer than usual. Now is the time to give us a call and book a trip. 607-290-4022
