Beaverkill Fishing Report

by Patrick Fowler June 13, 2018

In the Beaverkill and Willowemoc, water levels have lowered but wading and fishing  is still very good. Key hatches are Green Drakes (#10-#12), Coffin Flies, Sulphurs (#14-#16), Isos (#10-#14), tan and olive Caddis (#14-#18), and Olives *#14-#18). Small nymphs dropped off a dry have also been very effective. As above, look for patches of medium-fast water to drift your dry/dropper combination.
