Esopus Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

With the heat of summer approaching the hatches are becoming less reliable. Fishing terrestrials will be very effective done in the correct way. Most fish will be hiding in the deep, shady, undercut banks. Try drifting either a grasshopper or ant pattern into these areas for some explosive takes. Make sure to repeat your drift several times with multiple patterns because summer time fish can be very picky.

Seven-day forecast 

The weather this week will be consistent with the pattern we have seen most of the summer. We will see a few cool rainy days followed by a few days of fairly mild sunny weather. The nights will be on the cooler side with temperatures dropping into the lower fifties. The week will end with rain showers expected. This pattern has kept fishing conditions well above average for this time of year.
