Esopus Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

With several varieties of insects hatching simultaneously now is the perfect time to fish two flies. The bottom fly should be a heavy nymph with a emerger or wet fly tied about a foot behind as the second fly. My favorite combination, to match the hatch occurring now, is a Prince Nymph and a Caddis Emerger. Cast the combination straight upstream nymphing them down stream. Allow the flies to swing down stream and then slowly strip them back towards you. This technique will cover a lot of productive territory.

Seven-day forecast 

This week will be very summer like with daytime highs in the upper seventies and lower eighties. We should see the hatches resume as the warm temperatures continue through the remainder of the week.
