After three days of steady rain it was a relief to see some sunshine today. However, it also managed to rain on two different occasions. I'm still in Syracuse watching the water flows (both reservoirs are spilling again) but will be heading down to the river tomorrow, not to fish but to try to mow the lawn.
The rivers are again too high to wade fish. The best bet for waders this weekend will be the Beaverkill. With the reservoirs spilling the EB and the WB will be slower getting to wadeable levels (the EB is in fact still rising).
The bugs? There should still be Hendricksons in the upper reaches of both branches with the apple caddis hatch moving upstream in close pursuit. The BR, BE, BK and the lower parts of both the UE and the WB should start to see some March Browns.
The fishing? As of today you have three choices, fish: from a boat, from shore or stay home.
I'll let you know more as soon as I finish mowing the lawn.
