Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Fishing has been pretty solid this past week.. especially on the NY side. Dead drifting BWO emergers and spinners and Iso patterns still bringing fish up. Reports of flying ants still showing up sporadically and trout rising to them.

Great time of year to work big streamers for large hungry fish. Cast to bank and strip or swim your fly around holding structure. A good 3-4" streamer is not too big this time of the season.

Seven-day forecast 

Rain in the forecast will improve conditions and help fish move to their spawning areas. Nice weather coming this weekend and early next week. Fishing will be good if we get some rain thursday and friday.
