Esopus Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The Esopus is currently at a very nice level to wade. It is as clear as I have seen it in years. The fish can clearly see your fly, but some are feeding just below the surface. A small dropper about ten inches below your favorite dry will produce about fifty percent more fish.

Seven-day forecast 

The heat of summer will be with us for the remainder of this week. There will be a slight cool down towards the end of the week but it will be short lived as the heat will continue well into next week. Fishing early morning will be the best when water temperatures are lower.
