River Report / Conditions – April 30, 2019

April 30, 2019, Author: Patrick Cook

The mid to lower West continued to fish well yesterday. Anglers reported seeing more Blue Quills. The Beaverkill has been wadeable and fishing well. In the evenings I’ve been picking fish up on various Caddis patterns. Today should be another productive day with just slightly more wind.


Hendricksons – #12-14

Blue Quills (Paraleps) #16-18

BWO #16-20

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

Little Black/Brown Stoneflies – #14-18

Midges #20-26
