Yesterdays warm temps made the bugs very happy. Strong hatches of Paraleps an Baetis coming off the West from about 1p-4p. Reports were fish seemed a bit snotty, but fish were caught and it was an excellent mid April day in the Catskills.

Chimarra Caddis – Not very important as an Adult, but swinging little black soft hackles in riffs can be productive. #16 -18
