Fishing Report September 14, 2015

 

Our area rivers and streams have received some much-needed rain over the past weekend, when nearly two inches of rain fell between Saturday evening and Sunday morning. The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls is recorded as flowing at 132 cubic feet per second, which is above the average flow on this date of 112 cfs over 102 years of record-keeping. Water temperatures have been favorable for the trout, thanks to cooler evening temperatures.

A few fish have been rising in the afternoons; blue-winged olives seem to be the most prolific hatch along with various sizes of caddis flies. Watch for the slate- colored Isonychias to become more abundant as the month of September progresses.
