Esopus Creek

Tip of the week 

The water levels are very low so the fish are very spooky and somewhat reluctant to rise to the surface. The best results right have come from using a small dropper under a large Caddis fly or Terrestrial fly. The dropper should be a contrast to the upper fly. If the upper fly is light use a dark dropper. Most of the fish we have caught lately took a small black dropper that resembled a drowned ant.

Seven-day forecast 

The week started out very chilly with daytime highs only in forties. The weather will moderate somewhat by the middle of the week, but rain showers will be possible most days. The fish normally bite well with these conditions so don't let the rain keep you away from the stream.
