Esopus Creek

Tip of the week 

The Esopus is at a fairly good level for wading. It is a littlle off color so use a little bigger fly than normal to get the attention of the fish. There are few Light Cahills and Isonychias around so use the patterns that simulate these.

Seven-day forecast 

The few showers that were around the last few days have helped with the water level, but we could use more. This week temperatures will remain on the mild side with highs in the upper seventies. There could be a few heavy thunderstorms over the next few days so monitor the weather carefully. The hatches remain constant and plentiful as we head into the summer.
