River Report / Conditions – May 12, 2018

May 12, 2018, Author: Patrick Cook

We got mixed reports from yesterday.  The Main stem is still fishing the most consistently but the flows are still high for wading anglers.  Boat anglers are generally finding fish eating caddis and Hendricksons.   The East and West Branch have both had sporadic hatches of caddis and Hendricksons over the last few days.  The best option for wading anglers is still the Beaverkill.   The forecast for today is calling for rain and winds out of the ESE at 5-10 mph.


Tan caddis – #16-18

Blue Wing Olives – #18–24

Blue Quills – #16-18

Hendricksons #12-#14

Apple Caddis  #14-16
